Portrait Woodcut – Take Two

art, Prints, work in progress

Okay, so, layer two of this woodcut had some … technical difficulties. The transfer didn’t work properly the first time, and I ended up having to make two separate trips to Kinkos for new copies. I swear, I never successfully print something on the first try there.

ANYWAY. I printed both the first (and eventually) the second layer.

Here’s the block after having printed the first layer. I forgot to take a picture of the print at this stage (oops), but here’s what the print looks like with the two lightest layers printed.

After this, the third image layer transferred onto the woodblock just fine, so carving ahoy!

Because I’m working from a photograph, I kept the original image open on my laptop while I carved. There’s a lot of really small details that only sort of come through in the transfer.ps.screenshot
