Snow Skier print - proofing blue block


After proofing the blue block I've decided to make some adjustments to the carving before going to print. I'll be fine-tuning the details in the skier as well. This is a beautiful "Pthalo Blue Slight Red" pigment dispersion from Guerra. Carved image is approx. 2" x 6.5".

The carved image between the left ski post and skies is suppose to be a shadow. If it doesn't look like a shadow on the print, I will eliminate it.

Hi Bette,
I like your wood block prints and what an interesting craft. I have never worked with wood myself but enjoy seeing the finished prints. They look like they take a lot of time and care to make. I found you via Gabi and FB. Will add you to my blogroll.

Thanks Daniel--I started some spring cleaning and got distracted from printing this! Hopefully soon I can get back to it :)

Thanks Princess Haiku--Yes, the woodblocks do take time. Sometimes I like to step away from wood for awhile and do softblock carvings. I'm glad Gabi introduced us :)
