Well we have settled in our new home. I thought it quite apt to do a cut to celebrate home and what better than the swallows style birds and scrolls. They aren't exactly swallows or humming birds but I hope you can see the sentiment. They also had to hurry along to see if they worked as an actual tattoo design which is something that I hope to add pictures of in the future.
Starting with some style and shaping thoughts.
Starting to try and work the heart into the shapes of the birds using circles.
A colour sketch to see if I have the colours in the right places and which work best.
Final drawing onto the block before the other colours are cut and then printed...
