I painted this image with acrylic long time ago. I liked the composition so I decided to recreate the same image with wood engraving. As the first step, I flipped the image and recreated the image with ink. It was kind of hard to create the image with only black and white. The grays would be manipulated with the density and thickness of lines. But I need to have this value mapping in front of me when I curve. Of course the value patterns will change, but at least I have some guide lines.
Last night..until 2 o’clock in the morning…and all day today I worked on the wood. I am obsessed! But I do not know when I can finish this.
