Japanese Woodblock Printing – 3


Today I finished carving my fourth block and printed my first complete proof:

A printed image of chives.

First Proof

Can you see what it is yet? It is (and will remain) quite abstract but you might begin to guess that it represents chive flowers. The background is not a hill but different types of foliage, which might come out more clearly as I experiment with different printing techniques.

I still have two days to go and plenty of work to do but I am beginning to approach creating an interesting work of art.
