Cutting Wood Again…

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.

Printing in Progress…

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…

 

Work in Progress

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.
