I have been working on a new reduction block print of a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. These birds are one of the favorites that vist our feeder in the summer. I cut out the white areas on the bird first, and then printed a red layer. The second layer was a neutral gray to help cover the red. I 've printed one more layer of a greenish-gray so far. Today I cut away some of the background, and will print the leaves color next.
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
