Slowly but surely the cutting has reached the stage of a first proof with still more cutting to follow that will, hopefully, be tidying and finessing the block after this first proof. The image at the top left is the block itself cut to first proof stage, at the top centre the proof and block on the press and at top right is the first proof. Bottom left shows a proof on tissue overlaid on a proof of the first colour so that I can check registration and see how the composition is coming together. While I’m printing and progressively adding the other colours to the print, probably five more, I’ll cut into the line block and that will when the cutting is finished be the block used for the detailed final printing. Following this print there will be at least two more versions of this same landscape and composition inspired by different weather conditions, seasons and times of day. So, as I wrote previously, you’ll simply have to watch this space.
