2nd color. This was on a different paper.

Reduction Linocut by Mary Donato
Since I only did three colors on my butterfly, I had some extra time on the second day. I had also
discovered I had some small pieces of linoleum at home. So when I was finished with the first print, I carved a small design on another linoleum block and printed on my the paper I had leftover from cutting the first pieces down to size. I did a quick two color print and varied some of the colors as I went along.
I like how these little flowers turned out. They were quick and fun. What I realize with the reduction method, though, is that if I want to make more of these flowers, I have to carve another block for the first color. Or start a new one because I only have the second color design left.
