Linocut on the Xcut

I have continued having fun with the Xcut and trying to improve my cutting marks. I have bought some new Calico Safe Wash inks and I only had a tin of black left from a long time ago and it had formed a skin (this is apparently a well known hazard). I have used Soft Cut and now some Japanese Vinyl, which I like.

I have been going to a weekly drawing class and so decided to use some of my sketches as linocut inspiration.

Drawing scanned and reversed; I have given them each a flower for fun.

Original block

Trying to roll on two colours.
Then some cheat images, taking the prints into Icolorama app and changing the colours and background. Just for the fun of it.
