I've been working on a new block print, and finished it up yesterday. The image of the island and its lighthouse is from a photo I took while we were camping in Maine, on Penobscot Bay. I think it is the Indian Island Lighthouse, Rockport Harbor.
Step One/Two---Cutting out the white areas and printing two layers of blue
Step Three---Printing the brown layer over the blues
Step Four---There was also a layer of green
Step Five---The final black layer
The finished print ready to be signed and numbered. There are twelve prints in this edition.
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.
