A few examples of the prints I’ve pulled…
I have a deep love for the surface of a body of water. Based on some images of Lake Kawaguchiko, this block was a great place of learning for me.
I like the variations one can achieve in printing.
This was a very difficult print to get right and I’m still not satisfied with the final result, but I was trying a gomi effect in the foreground and softer tones in the background. A big learning curve.
This is the first version of this block. The colours are a bit clumbsy and I didn’t get the soft bokashi in the background.
I started to like the silkscreen-like quality of this print and tried to push that.
I like the brush-like marks in this print. It feels quite bold for a Mokuhanga work.
A bit of fun. Quickly carved and printed experimentally, I literally painted the block as I printed.
A selection of softer hues.
This is my final image and I had much more control over the medium.
Difficult to capture all the subtle tones in a photograph.
