A Blue Day

SurferBokashi

Today was all about blue ink. I added a bokashi (blend) at the top of the print for sky and then a broader bokashi at the bottom for water. The bottom bokashi was actually done in two passes so it would be stronger. I wanted the wave (see the wave block here) to seem to be rising up out of the dark blue at the bottom.

I love this!
I´m completely bowled over. I used to do woodcuts, and mostly linocuts at college, and I´m always meaning to go back to them.
I never find the time, but I think I´ll find this blog a massive source of inspiration.
Thank you!

The melding of these three passes is stunning. I loved looking at the raw wave block, but seeing the composition all together is a treat.

Hi Annie,

I am really having to scratch for suggestions these days. It looks great, but here goes...

Loosing the bottom of the swirl entirely seems a pity. How about a bokashi of light grey fading to nothing on this section to make it sit out slightly?
