The Old Neptune, Whitstable linocut
Work in progress. First draft and test print of one of Whitstable’s better-known landmarks. The Old Neptune sits right on the pebbly beach and is a favourite place to watch a beer and the sun, go down. Regarding the linocut, I just need to use a wider/deeper cutter to incise the lettering, which has filled in with ink too easily, so I will open that up. It needs a bit more care in the consistency of inking too, but it will all look excellent with some hand-colouring in watercolour later.
