There were boats everywhere!

August 24th, 2014


When I came back from Finland I was ready for a new project but since I don’t have a press, and although there are places where I could rent time on a press, the way I work wanders about and as I work the work its self develops. So I decided to work with woodblocks. Been a while so there was a period of reacquainting my self with my tools. I wanted to work with images I took of the little wooden fishing boats pulled into every cove I saw.

Once I tried the first image I cut 4 more and tested them, tested papers, tested myself… Once these are dry and I have had a chance to analyze them, then I will refine my cutting and more testing.

Today I did some more tests.

The final project is still evolving so…
