Large Print in Progress part 4?

© 2014 Hannah Phelps

This print has some new ink. I added some lighter blue to the top and some darker pink to the bottom. It looked like this before.

As the ink builds up, each layer takes a little longer to dry, so progress is slow. When I have a new photo, I'll show you one.

I have started another small one to work on at home on my little press. 

Wait, haven't I shown you my little press? Ooooh - you are going to love seeing this. Next time.

Point of Impact 4

© 2012 Hannah Phelps

The fourth print from the Point of Impact block. The colors are a little deeper in this one. Not better, just different.

The next thing I want to show you is the most recent layer on the big print I've been working on for a few months. The last time you saw it, it looked like this. Next week, I will show you how it looks today.

And don't forget, all of the finished prints and paintings are available.

Point of Impact 3

© 2012 Hannah Phelps

When I started printing white-line woodcuts quite a few years ago, I just printed something from the block and signed it. I didn't decide on an edition number or a limit. 

Since these prints are created one at a time, it is nearly impossible to make two the same. And it is fun to experiment with each one as I print it.

Then, I caved to some pressure (pun?) and did edition some of them. I try very hard to copy previous efforts whenever I print from these blocks. When I have reached the limit (10 for most of them), I will retire them. Maybe sell the blocks. 

In the meantime, I started some new blocks and I am going back to my original plan. It is more enjoyable for me and I think more exciting for collectors and looky-loos.

So I will share each one as I go, and with your discriminating eye, you can decide which ones you like best.

Next time, I will show you the 4th print from the Point of Impact block.

The first two have sold. Just sayin'.
