Bird with Alliums II (linocut, edition of 6) | Mary Hick | An image is drawn onto a piece of linoleum. Then the areas that are to appear blank in the final print are cut away with sharp chisels. Ink is rolled onto the uncut areas and the lino is pressed onto paper. The uncut surface gradually decreases as more areas are cut away

I feel it captures the vegetables well and makes them a lot more exciting. The colours are soft and neutral and really catch the eye.
