marsh harrier printing

Beavering away at Marsh Harrier proofing. Determined to follow through on my woodcuts despite the fresh input from Welsh woodlands. The previous 2 woodcuts that I’d made printed fairly easily from the initial cut blocks. This one always seemed to need more adding to it. I was interested in manipulating the blocks in various ways anyway… treating the blocks more like monoprints… with wiping, scraping, blotting etc… All a bit head spinning… achieving something of what I was after on one layer but then losing it on the next. These various proofs were trying to get a good balance.
