Been a while since I posted here. Busy with life and learning more about issues involved in reduction printmaking. This is my recent project. It had been in the works for almost 8 months. I started it before I really got the handle on how to use my etching press.

Without drying agents in the ink, it takes about a week to dry between colors. So with 8 colors - 8 weeks of drying (2 months).

The image is from a photo I took of a local small town theater located outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

Thanks. This one took a while...even after getting used to printing with my press. There is a fear once I start carving that I'm going to mess the block up so I tend to procrastinate a lot. Since finishing this block though, I've been printing 3 other blocks at least twice a week (gotta work too).
