2014 is behind us and it is time for a new year and some new tricks.
During the last few months of 2014 I focused on woodblock prints. I had never carved a block before so It was a real pleasure to learn something new and get a good start at making prints.
I do have some ideas for the future with woodblocks, and I will definately go bigger when I have the time to start some serious carving.
Here’s a couple of photos from my workspace. The blocks for the coloured once still need some carving.
Here’s a couple of pics from the “printshop”
I did frame one trialproof and gave it away for a christmas present, the piece is called “rain on me” and I did make two series of 5 from it. I am very happy to say that the person who received this print was really pleasantly surprised.
The next post is going to be about sculpting and I will also show some tools I made for myself.
