I love him. So bright. What was the decision to do a reduction block? I did one because I wanted to try the technique, but is there a real reason? ;-]

Actually, Ellen, I'd been wanting to do one again but inertia got in the way. With this big show coming up the focus is the 'how' of a relief process so I needed some photos. Now I'll have an actual print to place next to the photos... :lol: And that's the real reason.

Oh, and this is the first time to do moku hanga the Japanese way (brushing the ink) on... since seeing it done at the Baren Summit last year!

Thank you, all, for the positive feedback. I loved doing this moku hanga (my first). It turned out to be a lot easier than I imagined. And, yes, Annie, it's four colors. Maybe in the future I'll be daring and go more.
