I've been out of town. Again. I'm finally home to really settle in and finish several prints in progress.
I spent a lot of the afternoon carving the one above, my second Paris print, so I could go ahead and proof it. It's hard to really tell what it looks like until I ink it, but once I ink it, I lose all my drawing lines. Printmaking is an exercise in patience.
I'm largely pleased (despite the extra fuzzy newsprint proof). I'll fix a few things and get a better look soon.
I also did a little more carving and another proof on my Notre Dame print. It's just about ready to print for real.
And I proofed the second Elmwood print, which I had gotten to the refining stage ages ago before all my travels. It will be good to have it fully finished.
