I had a grand reduction print vision with this carving but once I really got into it I decided, instead, to create a different composition by adding the stamped tan bar to the left. This did the trick.
Sometimes you've just got to play.
A few of my tools. Are you wondering why the wooden spoon is in the picture? Here's my process...
I apply ink to my linoleum block (this brand is my favorite to date), lay the paper over the carving and run a brayer across. THEN I use the back of the spoon to rub over the paper to make sure the ink has transferred well. Works like a charm.
There you have it! Moral of the story with this week, don't give up when things are looking a little questionable. Instead, begin to play and trust the process.
