Blue Red Color Woodcut Print Art Couple Yoga Pose Moonlight Southwest Landscape
(Drinking in the Moon)
11" x 15"
Ink: Mixes of red, dark red, umber, blue, black
Paper: BFK Lightweight Buff
Process: This is a "puzzle" piece, in which the block was sawn in 3 pieces prior to printing. Each piece is inked separately with its separate color, the block is assembled at press. There is a rainbow mix on each piece, which means I mixed two inks while loading the roller. The result is a color print done in one single pass.
Image: I wanted to make some companion pieces to Entre Viento Y Sol, a print completed in 2000. Yoga poses in nature seem like an endless inspiration for new works. The desert is very conducive to meditation and becoming one with nature.
Woodcuts and wood engravings are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.
