Quick sketches for linocut projects

At the week-end, I did a few quick sketches that could be carved as linocut.

I used a graphite pencil to do a rough outline and then my Pentel  Color Brushes (Steel blue and Sepia).

On the owl, I experimented with leaving some lines out in the border. The frame is suggested by the negative shapes and it opens up the design.

For more on Linocut technique, see my article Working out tones with linocut and the links referenced at the end of this post.
