Since the first week back to the workshop after many months, thoughts and practice are now moving forward.
My second session has involved some altering and cutting of woodblocks, a look at colour alternatives and beginning of an exciting, ambitious new woodcut…that I will save for next time.
Four woodblocks are being used
- each block is cut differently
- each block is inked up with a different tone or hue
- I will print the lightest colour block first
- allow to dry between layers
Of course some wet on wet ink layers have been part of the process, while some layers are drying before the application of the next block …all leading to a new print edition.
A new colour edition of Secluded Bay coming soon to Wild Thyme Studio, from my Cornish Coastline series…there is certainly a story to tell from that trip.
