black swan by ~guitarsallly is a fantastic addition to our galleries here at dA. Distinct shapes, warm contours, and an alluring perspective. Please check out the artist, and please spend some time in our Printing galleries! ( Suggested by Void-Hamlet-Herself and Featured by zerocomplex )

I like the watercolour background. I'd like to try and do a woodcut one day, is it hard?

It takes some time to make one, your fingers will probably hurt a bit at first and you can't undo mistakes: what is gone is gone. But it's really worth it in the end! And also: Good quality cutting tools will make it easier.

You should really try it!

yes imagine it would. I just finished a lino print which is sort of similar and was just wondering if you use the same method. Thanks for the good advice.

love it. have you tried blended rolls? they have the same effect as your watercolor background, but it's all printmaking.

Thank you! No, never tried it, but I have seen beautiful prints using the technique. But I think one would need special woodblock inks, because my lino paint is definitely too thick for this and it also dries too fast...
