Linocut Carving – New Zealand Wildflowers

I am working away steadily at the NZ Wildflowers Linocut. I have had RSI in my arm/shoulder/neck in the past and so am mindful to try to take regular breaks. I used to just carve and carve to finish each piece as soon as possible but have been persuaded in recent times by physios etc that really the better approach is to take breaks, stretch and vary what I am doing. This is one of the reasons I am also doing the botanical & fauna illustration work.

As you can see I am up to the ‘fiddly flowers’ – lots of small carved sections to create the overall flower…

Anyway the block is getting there slowly.
