Final Reductions On Wind Map Block

I've made more progress this week on my wind map print. I ended up printing eight (I think; sometimes I forget to count) colors on the reduction woodcut. After that I printed a few colors on an uncut block by inking the block and then using masks to create the shapes I wanted. Here are some photos.

This is the final reduction, printed in blue, which I think is the 8th color.

Here I've added two areas of color, blue at the top and green below, using the same acetate mask for each.

I added two white shapes, again using acetate on an uncut block.

The white looks very opaque in the previous photo, but it's actually quite luminous and transparent.

More layers to come.

This process has been fascinating - and I absolutely love the effect of the white. Wonderful!
