no.7 (Allerton Grove)

following on from that last post, here's a print made with some thought given to pattern.
i've been making lino prints for a couple of years now - beginning with my bus print project back in 2010 - and yet i'm still only just getting my head around the process. in particular, the process of translating the relaltively subtle,sketchy pencil lines of my drawings into the simpler, bolder designs that i'm cutting on the lino block.
i need to look for pattern and shape a bit more when i'm drawing these i think.

the lyric is from 'half-light' by trembling blue stars

soundtrack :

'bigger wheels' by i am kloot
'calling out your name again' by darren hayman and the secondary modern (feat. emmy the great)
'two star' by everything but the girl
'oceanside' by the decemberists
'moon on your dress' by terry hall
'half-light' by trembling blue stars
'intervention' by the arcade fire
'wish me well' by the blue nile
'no more sad songs' by trembling blue stars
