Honeymoon Bay Tasmania - relief hand printing, carving a woodblock for each colour Mokuhanga (Moku = wood, hanga = print)

The traditional Japanese method of multi woodblock printing in registration is used to produce this handmade relief print. A drawn image is traced on to the woodblocks that are then hand-carved using chisels and gouges. A new woodblock is created for each colour. Water-based pigment colours and rice starch give the pigment ‘body’ and allow the color particles to remain in suspension which is then brushed on to the woodblock. Printing on toJapanese mulberry paper is done by hand using a rubbing tool called a baren. A process of discipline and sensibility. #printmaking #japanesepapers #tasmania#willoughbyartscentre

Quick little A3 collage to give me inspiration. #mixedmediacollage #olddrawingsofmine #creativity #charcoaldrawing #intuitive #abstraction ...

‘Saltwater’ Acrylic on canvas 76 cm x 91 cm. Worked mainly from my visual memory rather than using my sketchbook drawings done on my recent trip to the east coast of Tasmania. So many beautiful bays, different rock formations and boulders to walk over, pristine water, white sand and interesting life forms….
