This is a 5x6in lino cut on rice paper, as you see I am a beginner!
I was trying to create grey areas but it still turned out choppy black and white.

Very nice! I love the glowing Martini.. :D The "choppy black and white" actually turned out very well.

I like the choppy look too. It is hard to get grays in lino unless you use alternative tools like an awl, dremel, even some stiff steel wool. This is a good image, and it brings back a lot of memories for me....lol I bartended part time for about 20 years in SF. By 3am when I had the bar cleaned up for the nexts days business things usually looked pretty choppy to me :D

What a wonderful, fun piece!! ;)

You did a great job with this -- can't wait to see more!

Not choppy at all! that's the beauty of lino and woodcut, the lovely balance of pure black and white (unless you use multiple inks, which is fun too).

And you remembered to carve the lettering backwards. :clap: I always forget that.
