Off the Wall


Paleo-Phoenix, Paleo-Mythos Series
This is a viscosity woodcut print, using the 3 primary colors rolled on in different viscosities. Some color was wiped off, other colors mingled. This technique is always a happy accident.

LOVE THIS TECHNIQUE! Do you always try to use the same colors for the whole edition to try to keep it consistant as possible?

Hi Lori,

Ha! Are you kidding?! Consistancy is NOT my middle name. ;-> However, I am getting better, and I have found that by using the same colors I can get similar results. But then I can't stop myself from playing around and suddenly I'm doing something different again. ;-j I have to put E.V. on most of my prints, as the edition varies.

What a great print. I love your colors. Maybe I would like to see the bird stick out a little more?
Nice hair!!!!
