Reduction Prints

I've decided to blog more regularly so today seems like a good day to add something--I took a two day workshop with Chuck Miley today and yesterday.  We worked on making reduction relief prints with  emphasis on drawing with our gouges.    It was liberating!  Although we made drawings from a still life, they became just a departure point.   Later I'll upload a picture of the black and white block prints but for today take a look at some of the multi color  prints!

I can't decide which of the prints I like better, the browntone or the colored one. I'm a sucker for b&w prints, but color does add a whole new dimension.

I agree, Ellen. The end results were so surprising as these inks were fairly opaque. I'm a big fan of black and white so I was out of my comfort zone with all this extreme color!
