There are two lino blocks used. One of them is the Key Block (black) and the other is the Reduction Block used several times, cutting away more and more lino. A finished print is a combination of layers of ink and is usually in an edition of 45 prints. IN this case, there are four layers. The images below are from the linocut ‘Starlings and Poppies’      (Click to enlarge)
