I have been continuing my exploration of reduction printing. I have two other linoleum prints completed since my last posting. I also decided to try out the technique on wood, which is a little more luscious to work with than linoleum.
Rick got me some very nice woodblock plates for Christmas and I have some Japanese gouges that I have been using for years.
I decided to try something a little more simple this time, two colors only; light teal and dark purple. The image was also quite simple, some waves and a couple of sea birds. I printed it on some beautiful handmade Korean paper. It is wonderful to use and is almost transparent, but stands up well to the burnishing.
This one went pretty quickly and most of the run turned out well.
