After my lovely one day workshop with David Peduzzi learning wood engraving, guess what I got for Christmas?!
A fantastic set of wood engraving tools and blocks.
The first thing I did was a tester block of all the different marks I could make with my tools.
Then this is my first 'on my own' print.
I still need to work out how to add tones as the stippling didn't really work here. But I'm pleased with the rest.
Comments from home range from;
"Yeah, it's alright"
"No, sure, it's good"
"You can't really tell what it is though, can you?"
Do you think Durer or Ravilious went through this sort of thing?
Thanks for the feedback. Yes it is supposed to be a worn away groin at the beach.... not sure it's very clear so more practise creating textures I think.
Both the wood block and the printed image as so interesting to look at. It looks like driftwood at the beach but I get very similar comments to the pieces of Work I do.
This looks really good Tricia. A beautiful abstract! Do you find this more difficult than lino carving?
Great result Tricia! It looks difficult to me….. Helen
