Printing a tree

sky block and kento
Winter tree

A very satisfying 2 days of Japanese woodblock printing with Laura Boswell at the Courtyard Art Studio.  Learnt a lot, though I am a long way off the elegance and subtlety of her work.  My kento leave a lot to be desired, and the first proof was just a bit messy!

Quite pleased with this effect, and the “chatter” in the moon is deliberate, if a bit blurred from over-printing – more practice on registration needed.  Wish I could remember how to get the stormy sky effect.
