52 Weeks of Print: 37/52 Reduction Print

52 Weeks of Print: 37/52

Another attempt at reduction printing this week so, again, I kept it fairly simple.
This is my initial carving.

And this is the final. 

Critical: I think there should have been more detail in the final layer. My first attempt had dark brown as the final, darkest layer and that was too much. So, I switched to a dark teal blue.

In my opinion, reduction printing is similar to watercolor in that you go from lightest to darkest AND that you should have a pretty good idea of the end result when you begin. This is where I tend to run into problems because it's still very new. Here's my first attempt and I find this chart very helpful when planning.

I'm still intrigued with the entire process of reduction printing and there will most certainly be more in the future.

It's time for a new desktop! I snapped this shot last week from the mountain cabin as the leaves were furiously swirling about. I tend to go for more of a blurred or simple background so that I can easily spot my desktop files. Hope you enjoy it.
