Linocut Waterplants

I am working with a new medium, linocut! This is the first try for carving, which is pretty crude but hopefully things will improve. It can be humbling to be forced back into that phased where you struggle and suck with a certain media, patiently working at it.

I am thinking about doing a series of underwater plants just so I can practice with the tools. What do you think? I have lots of ink drawings on this subject matter just laying around. Marthe Armitage is a british wallpaper designer and an amazing inspiration for this type of work. Check out her process video for how she makes her beautiful designs.
