First Plate for Great Wall
As I mentioned a few posts ago, I've had an influx of illustration work that's slowed down my printmaking to a crawl. Good for the pocketbook, though. I have managed to finish carving one plate for the Great Wall print, shown above.
Recently I've been doing a lot of reduction blocks. When using that method I carve, then print, then carve again. In this case, though, I'll only be doing portions of reduction printing, probably mostly in the bottom section of the print, so I have another block to carve for the upper area before I do any printing.
