woodcut print

Happy St Patrick's Day!  This woodcut print just happens to be green.  An earlier version had a yellow background instead of green.

Relief printing was the last of three techniques that we learned.  Carving is strangely calming.  The sound of the tool against the wood might be part of it.  Below is the woodcut block.

The woodcut I made was a rather crude novice attempt.  To see fine woodcut work, look at the hummingbird that our instructor carved for the Calliope wine label.
