Lino cut and printmaking

I've been experimenting with lino cuts, based on aerial views (Macair style) of the Gulf of Carpentaria heading across from the mainland to Mornington Island. The patterns made in the double tide lines when leaving the mainland are equisite. The drawings are first made in a journal (top left), then transferred to the lino for carving (bottom left). The first print was made onto paper, before printing on raw silk which was then stitched with various threads, including metallics to capture the shimmer of afternoon sun.
