"Into The Woods"

"Into The Woods"
6 color reduction woodcut 
Image 9x12
paper 13x16
Image is made on artist quality paper BKF Rives

This multi-color image is printed by hand using the reduction method.  I first carve from a woodblock the areas/shapes to be left the color of the print paper. The first area I carve away becomes the white of the paper, I apply ink to the woodblock (orange in this case) and rolled it onto the woodblock and transferred on paper either by hand or by a hand operated proofing press, the image that is made is then orange and white (white where I carved) the block is cleaned off, and I then carve away the areas to remain orange. After the first color dries, The next color is printed directly over the previous... and so on until the print is finished.  I keep my editions small and each image is a little different than it's sibling.

Price is for print only, no mat or frame. Print ships flat in a protective sleeve with mat board backing.
