Courtesan linocut print inspired by Harunobu

I’ve neglected the blog lately as there’s been so much going on at work and at home. Last Sunday, however, I managed to find some time to do some printing. Pictured below is the end result. It’s a four-colour linocut print, size 4″ x 6″. I’m new to working with multiple colours / layers so you’ll see that I missed the mark slightly in places!

The image is based on a woodblock print of the famous courtesan Shiratama by Harunobu.

In addition to the four-colour prints I also printed some monochrome greeting cards.
