Examples of Insect Linocuts

This linocut was made by carving the positive space (dragonflies

and shrubbery) away and by applying cream ink to the linocut.

This left all of the positive space raw paper. The artist then used

soft pastels add more colors and details.


Examples of Insect Linocuts

The artist started with simple blue ink on colored paper. Then

the artist colored in the print using colored pencils.


Examples of Insect Linocuts

then applied to the print.
