Whitby – The story behind the print

Updated: May 19, 2020

The photos below show how I'm making new Whitby linocut print.

December 2019 - I have updated this blog with 3 videos showing how I ink up each lino block.

Planning the design

The view is looking down across the bay from Whitby's iconic steps.

Creating colour variation ideas, one to coordinate with my Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes prints and the other with the iconic red roof tops.

Working out how many lino plates to cut and which colours each will be.

Cutting the design into three lino plates
