First white-line woodblock prints

Complications prevented me from taking the printing workshop with Paul Yank in Cedarburg,
so now's time to give white-line woodblock printing another go.

This is the one I just completed. I have to photograph the print, scanning just isn't working.
At least you can see where it's going.

I love these! I think white line prints are dynamic. I've tried to mimic the effect with multiple colors at once, the cheater way, but it never looks quite the same.

You are really ambitious.

Terrific! Are you sure you haven't done this before? You're a natural. All three of these prints are just lovely.

Thanks, so much.
Annie, I gave it a try a while ago...but, it didn't do anything fo me. Things change, I'm at it again.

I so love these! They are wonderfully rich, expressive and so wonderful to look at. Your colors, composition and whimsy... it's just all so good. Thanks for posting the process shots.
