Woodcut Print which is cut out of Ply wood. A2 in Size it is a large works for a print.

After several months of carving and printing I finally had a print day. The day went well and at the end of the session I found some old prints that were duds (Rainforest) on archival paper.

I decided to do some of the woodcut prints on top of those prints. I painted over the print thinly with acrylic white paint. Then after it dried I made a print with the woodcut plate.

When this was dry I handpainted with acylic and ink to highlight the flowers from the background as it is a very busy print.

The result is here. I will be matting and framing this print and then entering it into the Mount Eliza North art show this year. I hope you can come and see it in person in October.

    Very nice building the layers this way. I think if I had this woodblock I would keep going with the color to enhance all these great edges and textures. See my new one, we must be channeling each other? LOL!

  • Yes I had a look at it , beautiful. Why not YOU do a woodcut print. I know you have a BA in Printmaking! I would love to see you do some again. Yes, I am handcolouring another one now. This one is done….for now. But doing one in butter yellow and will see where that one goes. Plus I am going to re-cut the plate. Too may black lines at the top and sides, going to make it even cleaner. B
