Honey Bee Visions - Frutilaria
HONEY BEE VISIONS - FRITTILARIA
White line reduction woodblock print
5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) image on Echizen Kozo paper
This is the second white line grid print I’ve made (see the first one here) and I think I’m getting better at it. I’m calling these “Honey Bee Visions” because this is somewhat the way that a bee, with its compound eyes, would see a flower. Artist/scientist Andy Giger has a page on his web site called B-EYE that shows more accurately how a honey bee sees (more elongated than the prints I'm making).
Here are a few more photos taken at various stages:
