A lino print inspired by the transit of Venus across the moon. I cut away the crescent moon and Venus and then etched the shadowy area to give it some texture. I'm experimenting with lino etching and in this print I inked the lino, wiped away the etched area with an oily cloth and inked again. The oil resisted the ink slightly, giving a lovely shadowy atmosphere to the print.
Print size approx 10 cm x 15 cm
Printed in midnight blue
