I coulda swore that I already commented on this!! I come back to this picture every once in a while just to gaze at this golden piece of beauty!! It's wonderful and definitely worthy of a DD. Great work!!
HOLY MOLEY!! This is fantastic! I took this class recently, and never was experienced with it prior to that. This. This just makes me totally respect you. And your amazing artistic ability. Wow. So much patience! And you have a vivid communication through this. It is so beautiful! fantastic job!
This is absolutely gorgeous Is it a reduction print, or did you use multiple blocks? I love the linework, I love the warm, yellow tones, and the curled-up figure that leads the eye smoothly through the entire piece.
Sure, no problem! A reduction print is made with one block and a limited set of prints. For each color, a little more of the block is cut away until most of the block is gone. Because of this, the limited set of prints will be the only existing prints, no more can be made. Using multiple blocks in printmaking allows for the use of many colors, one color for each block, and the prints can be made again and again. Was that easier to understand? Sorry for the confusion!
Yeah, thanks, now I understand (I'm sorry, my english isn't perfect ) I used the reduction print it took so much time for cutting off all those colors but I think this is better technique, I mean at least the effect is better
That's alright, I couldn't tell at all Not everyone's familiar with the reduction technique, or if they are, they may not know that it's called "reduction". I absolutely love reduction, it's the main technique I use when doing printmaking! You did such a beautiful job
