Reduction Print


Here's "Storm," another of the prints in the Land on Paper show, also a reduction woodcut. This one's bigger, 6" x 8". There are five layers of oil-based ink, starting with the lightest yellow and finishing with the darkest gray. One thing I didn't anticipate was the way the previous layers sometimes showed through, but I ended up liking it.

Another nice one. How long did each layer take to dry?

Thanks, Dragon! I had added a teeny bit of drier to the inks, so they dried overnight.

Thanks, Amie! It was fun to do. Great cat, BTW.
