Woodcuts!

Hello again! It’s been awhile.

We’ve been doing woodcuts in our print class and it’s the first time in a few weeks homework is fun and worth sharing. I’m kinda proud of how my first ever woodcut turned out:

wheat field woodcuts

The photo I used was one I took in England of an endless wheat field swaying in the breeze. The cutting process was easier than I thought, and I only bruised two fingers while doing it! And then the printing itself was exciting. I made a ton of prints and it took a while to get the swing of things. The one at the top of the middle pic is one of my better ones, but it’s still got some even pressure issues.

Next up – linocuts! I’m using pics of my doggie for that. I’ll share it if they’re any good :)
