Appledore Evening's Block

Painting, drawing and block for Appledore Evening, jigsaw print by New England artist, Hannah Phelps.

 

Most of my hand-pulled prints start as plein air paintings. The oil study on the top right is After a Delicious Dinner on Appledore Island.

I liked the composition and energy, so I did the pencil drawing shown on the bottom left. Then, I traced that drawing, seen lower right, and used the tracing to transfer the image to the block, which is on the upper left.
