Waterfalls Block Print

If you have been following my blog, you know I spent the last week exploring West Virginia.  I decided to make a block print from one of my sketches.  It’s a waterfall scene outside Charleston.

I carved the design in reverse in a block of linoleum

Then inked the block…revealing the first glimpse of what the print will look like…

Here’s the first print.  I decided to carve a little more to give some white foamy space to the water.

The finished print. 

Come see me print this live at my studio tonight, Friday 26 from 6-10pm at the Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati, Oh. 

I am having a special guest, Rob Weingartner.  He is a master silversmith, and stone cutter, and does all his work by hand…from cutting the stone, to setting it in silver.  He is also a good friend and very nice guy. come see us both at studio 400A.
