I am not only happy with my recent batch of prints, but I am proud of myself for breaking out of the orange/ red swirl pattern rut I had fallen in. I still need to do more experimentation but this is a pretty good start. I want to do more with the squares.
The block of squares that I used for these prints is, as usual, a lot larger than the prints I usually do. That way I can get a lot of variety from the same block of wood and I only sort of have to worry about composition when I am carving. I have another block of pure pattern in the works, but this one is very large and I might not get to finishing it for awhile.
