Like most of my prints, I used a plein air painting as a reference for this print. I cut up a block of a pliable material called soft kut into a lot of little pieces. Then I inked each one and put them back together before printing.
**Printing jigsaw reliefs is such a complicated exercise - the only way to clearly explain that is to show you how it works, so I made a short video when I created Bright Day - another jigsaw relief print available in this store.
This little demo shows you my tools, piles of ink, paper, and workspace. Plus, you can see all the pieces of the block, from the large and simple to the teeny tiny nub that actually did get lost down the drain when the edition was done and the block cleaned for the last time.**
All the materials used in this print are entirely archival. Each print is hand numbered with impression and edition (ex. 3/10, 4/10, etc.) and signed and titled.
Of course the prints are supposed to all look the same, but they are handmade, so don't be surprised if yours is unique and varies a tiny bit from the picture here.
