Marion’s Sunflowers

Laura Boswell teaches Japanese Woodblock printing techniques.

Marion’s woodblock and proof prints.  She used her own original Chinese brush painting as the basis for the design.  Repeated prints of the same block with colour applied to different areas were used to build up intensity and gradation of colour – a very Chinese printing  technique.

Angela tried to create a print of an ancient Chinese bronze vessel, using multiple woodblocks.  It is rather important to get the registration blocks (kento) right!   More practice needed to find the best colour combinations.
