Project 15: Developing a series of four combination & experimental prints

As this is my final project of the course I’m aware it’s important to try and chose a subject or area that I can showcase my ability/ how my printmaking has improved.

So I found a lino block I’d cut in a previous project, based on a house across the road, and set about figuring out a way of incorporating chine colle.
