For this project I used a great piece of wood that I cut down to an 18" by 18" size. The thickness of the wood was maybe 3 inches when i started. For a reduction, the background color is printed first. I cut the background then printed, then cut again for the next color. I did this for 4 colors. By the end of the process, the block is reduced to nothing. This makes the artist only have a certain amount of prints. I made a total of 10. The print is of a field of pinwheels for the organization Pinwheels of Peace.

I'd never seen this technique before, fascinating, and I love windmills.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
