Is that two colour or are the tones achieved by layers of glue and textures on the plate? It is a very complicated image to make a plate for. Well done you!
The tones are down to the different textures on the block (who knew that masking tape and selotape could be so versatile) but it is also inked in sepia (for the large lady) and prussian blue (for the stage)
Wow - that is a detailed and complex block and print Jac - great result!
Thanks. I like this way of working. It means I can make the block over the week at home and then take it to the studio to print.
Recently I saw a "kitchen doll" - her skirts open to reveal a kitchen! There's a photo at https://www.flickr.com/photos/ceci-cheung/8085013987/and she's in the Deutsches Historisches Museum, Berlin.Might be another in your series?
I saw the doll in your post soon after I finished the drawings for the print. She made me think that there might be a series in the idea as well
I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
