White Line Woodcut Fever
I took a class with Amy McGregor Radin in April of 2013 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown, MA. I discovered a technique that brings together printmaking and watercolor painting: two of my favorite things. White line woodcut was developed in Provincetown, MA in 1915, and made famous by Blanche Lazell and a number of other artists who embraced this simple technique as an alternative to Japanese woodblock printing (which requires a separate block for each color).
Below is a new print entitled Evening Owl. I love the subtle gradations of color and the textures that are transferred from the wood.
