Working With Wood

selfie wood

I recently did a woodcut selfie. I showed the print that I took a couple of days ago, and here now is the woodblock. I often like the blocks more than the prints, especially if they’re on a nice grained wood. I sometimes don’t want to ink up a woodblock because I think it would spoil the image.

nude wood

I’ve been working on this nude for a while now, but I don’t really want to finish it and print it up because I really like the way it looks. Maybe I’ll finish cutting it and leave it unprinted, as a unique piece.

    Beautiful, I agree the nude is very powerful as is.

    I agree, I think as a piece this nude is so powerful and expressive I can see why you would think that this is the point to stop. Isn’t it hard, to know when any piece is finished and needs no more work?

      Thanks. There doesn’t seem to be a tradition of presenting carved wooden panels as art in this country but I saw examples of it on a visit to Pakistan and I was bowled away by them – half carving and half painting. I need to rethink….
