When I took my woodcut class a few weeks ago, I learned how important proper registration is. So for this series I followed the instructions for getting perfect registration every time. What a difference that makes!
Each piece is 5" x 5' with a 2" border all around on a 9" x 9" sheet of paper.
As you can see, at this size I have tightened up the composition with lots of overlapping. I rather like it. It looks like you are right down in the garden and can almost smell the plants.
And here I thought I would be going bigger. I even bought one of those giant gelli plates! Oh well. It does help to have a larger space to work on even if in the end it is only 5" x5".
I can't seem to get enough of the ghost prints!
