More post-modern rococo: work in progress

Nymph in a wood after Dossi Dossi.
Nymph after Dossi Dossi; (above) first rough impression on layout paper; (below) lino block. Image size 4×6 inches.

As you can see I again drew directly onto the lino. Cutting the block is almost the easiest part. I first print onto layout paper using the back of a wooden spoon rather than a press. Then errors in the cutting can be identified and corrected. The hard part is getting the inking just right to produce the final print edition, because I don’t want to waste expensive Japanese paper. I’ll need a clear day to get an edition done.
