woodblock print 5 x 7 inches
I have been so into painting lately and it was hard to change gears and make the print. And the subject wasn't appealing at all.... I hate snakes. But once I got into it, I enjoyed it.
I used three blocks..... the yellow and green were done with the same shina wood block, and another shina block was cut for the red. I used linoleum for the black (key block).
I printed the yellow block and then the red block.
And here the green printing which was a reduction of the yellow block to just the numbers..
I printed about 50 usable prints, mostly on BFK, a few on shin torinoko. I used some chinese tube watercolor, sumi ink and methyl cellulose and printed with a baren.
The snake is a coral snake.
1930Just found your blog.....sorry I didn't get here sooner.
Love your little coral snake....and the little daily paintings/still lives are delightful...what a great way to fill a long cold January with art!.
Thanks, Andrew. I'm looking forward to getting your beautiful print soon.
