Drawing with cutting tools for Line and Shape

 Echinacea                                      by Velasquez©2013

I went ahead and started to carve the Echinacea sketches I made for last Thursday's post. You can see the post here.
I wanted to approach the each drawing differently in the  print it would make. I wanted to show  graphic shape in one and in the other I wanted just line as in the original sketch. 
Each one shows its own strength in design. Love how they turned out.

Many test sheets for black ink on paper. I can see a few clean up spots but I do like the honesty of those imperfections from relief printing. 
Tomorrow will bring some color play experimentation.

Thank you for stopping by.
