linocut Nurnberg

I found linocut printmaking to be a great technique for rendering the traditional architecture of Nurnberg. I chose a large-size block, that would allow sufficient area for the intricate decorative effect of the timber and daub architectural style of medieval Nurnberg. In order to add to that effect and create a focus point in the print I have cut out one fragment, having it printed in a different color-ink. And for the mixing of the two areas I have added small areas of color applied by hand.
