Legs – Woodcut

This is my initial print from a wood cut plate I carved. I was happy with some elements of the peice eg strong white and black contrast and how the ink picked up some of the grain from the plate/board. However I wasnt keen onthe overall look because some lines were lost through my unfamilirarity with the carving tools and subsequantly i dont think the image is clear enough for the veiwer to desipher what it is.

I’ve done a couple of woodcuts since this and they’v been more succesful, i’ve become more profficiant using the carving tools and I’ve been shown appproaches to introduce more colours by removing more from the plate and overprinting new colour.
