Woodcut Printing

Woodcut in progress...
First things first - I coloured in the bits NOT to chisel off.  (and yes, that is a pine shelf from B&Q that i'm  hacking into)
the wood block itself, all inked up and masked off.

experiments (amount of ink, pressure, various paper  types)

the theme was "tension" ...but this is a bit too horrific.  Oh wellllll. 

Printmaking... I do not love it.
