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. Some, like Point of Impact, are in the Etsy store.

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. Or you can see it/buy it on Etsy.

The first two have sold. Just sayin'.
