Stonewall Reduction Print

I've been having a great time taking a printmaking class this fall. Last weekend I had the opportunity to work in the studio Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon, while an "Open Studio" event was going on at the college. During this marathon session, I worked on a new four-color reduction print. The print is made using only one block that is carved away with each subsequent color. The darkest final layer pulls the image together.


  1. This looks great! I loved printmaking in University. Silkscreen is my favorite form of printmaking, for my portfolio class I did a 7 color print! That was brutal! :-P

  2. Great technique, and such a tranquil image! :o)

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Jane. Maybe you can create a picture book dummy using block prints. You've really got a knack for these! I love the subtle color in this one.
