My first white line print

This was my first attempt at a white line (Provincetown) print. I printed it on Cape Cod a few summers ago. I had brought my watercolor paints with me and decided to give the technique a try. So, I went into the village where we were staying and headed for a local lumber yard. There I picked up some scrap boards and a box cutter. Yep, that's what I used to cut the block. It's amazing what a little ingenuity can yield.

Anyway, I only pulled one print but I think it turned out pretty good. Don't you agree?



Well, this is it, my own blog about my printmaking. I work mostly with woodcuts, mostly hand colored, though I've also tried my hand at white line prints. So, I'll try to keep posting my new works, talking about the wheres and whats of my art.
