Carved Flower Part One • May Flower Challenge • Day Nine
Turned paper over to see flower drawing in order to trace.
|The carving begins.|
As you can see below it turned out to be a nice graphic, strong and bold. I love the look, a lovely surprise.
I have inked up the block to see what more is needed to be cut away from the block.
I will run some test prints to help find uneven spots.
The carved block looks great in its raw form, there is a primitive feel to the carving.
I will start printing tomorrow.
Well there you have it! A Flower carving for day nine of The May Flower Challenge . Each day you can post your flower creation, whether it is a doodle, drawing, photograph, collage or painting.
