This is my second reduction block and I found it both exhilerating and frightening. I’m not used to doing a total edition at one time. There is always the danger of damaging the block and thus the whole run at any stage.
Overall I’m pleased with the result. I would have gone back and changed a couple things, but of course there is no going back with a reduction block.
There are two basic color effects, stemming from experiments with the lightest color. I like them both. It changes the mood of the print slightly.
I learned a lot with this project, chiefly that I am not afraid to realign the block to print multiple colors on one print. I’m ready to tackle a multiple block print now.
