Linocut Print: Japanese Goldfish

I thought I'd try doing a linocut of the goldfish drawing/watercolor from earlier post here. I used the MasterCarve blocks and a #1 cutter. This image from applying watercolor directly to the block and printing on watercolor hot pressed paper. Since I have been reading so much on Design, I could not help envisioning this as a logo. So this is a fictitious cafe...but I would love to go there:) Not done with this yet. May still want to add the characteristic spots by subtracting more of the block...more to come:)
