Shoreline photos as inspiration

I am very much enjoying my PressNorth residency. I have been experimenting with creating linocut prints of the reef to feature in Benthos Illuminated, our upcoming 2016 exhibition at Umbrella Studios, Townsville. I draw my imagery from the many photos I take while wading along the shores, especially during the really low tides. The egret, below the reef image here, was a real poser and I was able to get a lot of photos of him in a variety of poses. In the linocut, I have combined the reef with the egret.

    The linocut look great, Lynn. I like it as it is. I’m sure the print will look beautiful.
