"The Orchestra" was challenging due to my shameful ignorance of classical music, instruments, and actual orchestras. The result is therefore a completely artistic and purely visual interpretation of such things, but hopefully the viewer can fill it with the appropriate sounds and knowledge.
This average-size linocut comes in various colors and hues, though due to its decorative character residing so much on the drawing, it only looks good monochrome - the only variables being the color of the paper and that of the typographic ink.

Other effects can be obtained by changing the pressure of the imprint or playing with the ink, such as wiping part of it before taking it to the press.
