Afraid To Blow It
I want this next print, the "Air" print, to look, well, airy. I scribbled some wind and I like the scribbles so much that I want to try to carve them just like I drew them. (I said try!)
Everything I've read says to do the close and careful cuts first and then the clearing, but too many times I've wrecked my carefully carved lines with overzealous clearing, so i did some clearing first:
Now I'll get out my magic magnifying glasses and work on these lines. See you later, I'll be a while!
