Having completed our sessions on learning the basics of lino-printing we were given a week to choose what we would like to do. I scaled up the design of my lino-print rose and chose to do a painting in the style of the American artist Georgia O'Keeffe. This was painted in Acrylic paint, starting with pale thin washes, gradually building up the colour with glazes. We also have to make craft items for our course and I have chosen to create greetings cards from my art. I took a photograph of my rose painting and then printed to fit blank cards.
The second card was re-coloured using an Art package on the computer before printing.
