This is, without a doubt, the most involved print I've ever done. It's a reduction woodcut that so far has about...six or seven layers of color, and I've got maybe three more to go.
For those of you who aren't familiar with printmaking, a reduction print is a color or tonal process in which little bits of the block are cut away before each color is printed. The idea is to lay down a color and then cut away areas of the block where you want that color to show through. No worries, when it's all finished I'll post a big production piece that shows the various stages of how it's done.
The idea came from the linoleum print I had done a while ago in my elementary art education class. I liked it so much that I decided to work with it again. It's just so much fun! I love working with tiny detail.
