I haven’t done any printmaking for a while but now I want to start again with linocuts and woodcuts. I would like to do more of these…
Printing again… This time on fabric!
What I did here was to glue a linoleum plate on a piece of wood and use it like a normal stamp.
I also tried cutting into the woodplate directly but that was pretty hard…
Being inspired by the wild flowers and plants of my macro photography I did these floral woodcut prints.
I really love still lives. This woodcut was done combining some details of my sketches.
I liked some parts of the finished print so much that I also did some smaller prints on gift tags.
I don’t know why but I like some of my travelling pictures so much that I want to turn them into a print. That’s what I did with this picture of Loch Lomond, which was taken during our trip to Scotland. I liked the wild, unspoilt nature there a lot.
I’m quite happy with this woodcut, especially how the two plates and colours mix.
It’s quite I while since I started making woodcuts, but I think I’m slowly getting a feel for the material and the process.
Woodcuts leave a different impression than linocuts. I think this is due to the bulkiness of the material and the the fine wooden lines which are often left on the plate when cutting.
I also like to combine two plates to be able to play with different colours…
I started a new woodcut using a picture from one of our hikes as inspiration.
Cutting the branches of the tree was quite challenging but I like how it turned out in the end.
I’m going to make a another printing plate so I can print the landscape in two different colours.
I’ve been thinking about opening my own online shop for quite some time.
Well, now I finally opened it! I want to offer some of my favourite linocut and woodcut prints there so if you’re interested, please have a look:
I printed some of my woodcuts on small postcards.
I want to set up an online shop at Dawanda, which is a German online platform for DIY products, where I am planning to sell some of my smaller prints as well as these cards.
But it still needs a whole lot of preparation to set up the shop…
