This is a large woodcut block that I have just completed. I will be pulling a print from this before I ink it up. I got a book for Christmas with the artist “Cressinda Campbell” and she paints her blocks first and pulls a print with colours before inking up with printing ink. She also sells her blocks and prints together.
So I thought I would give this a go. For now this is the block and I will post the print when I get to it. I really enjoyed cutting this block. It took me 2 months to do and my hand is really hurting as a result. So its time out for me with the cutting of wood.
THE MODELS NAME IS “CONNIE PAGE”
