Last weekend I was out sketching from the lovely Tufia coast in Gran Canaria.

"View from Lugar punta de mala gato" pencil on sketchbook


Last week I worked on another linocut. I wanted to create a night scene with the moon with addition of a few objects and a cat. Once I drew the sketch, I go through on stages to simplify the design in order to be able carve it properly on lino.
