Night Heron after Bewick

3″x3″ linocut with Graphic Chemical bone black ink
I wanted to see how much detail I could achieve on linoleum using my 1mm V gouge, and this experimental print based on a Thomas Bewick engraving is the result.  I guess now I will have to stop saying that I can achieve finer detail on  cherry wood or pear wood than I can on linoleum.
