Reduction Linocuts

Need inspiration or guidance on reduction printmaking? I know I do.

Here’s a great overview on the methods used by Los Angeles printmaker Dave Lefner. I’ve been following his art for awhile. His work-ethic and approach to his craft is very motivating. Ahhh, so much to do, so little time…

Here’s a great video by Ric Serena showing the artist at work in his studio.

    Thanks for dropping by. Yes it’s a great video, very inspirational for artists living in the digital age. It would be fun to see your work, do you have a link?

    The video of Ric Serena’s studio and his demonstration is really fabulous! Thank you for sharing. I had just finished my first reduction linocut and was hunting on the internet to find the proper name and ran across your site. Loved the video and Ric Serena’s artwork. What a marvelous direct style he has!

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
