So, I did this several years ago when I was taking a printmaking class.  Loved the technique, but woodcarving is murder on my hands!  This is still one of my faves Smiley



I used two blocks:

Thank you! It's not too bad if you use well sharpened tools, but I can't work too long because it starts to hurt my wrist.  After a few woodblocks I eventually switched to lino, and ultimately to E-Z cut synthetic rubber blocks. I still love the way the wood looks though.

Wood definitely has a different look to it, which I was surprised about as the technique of carving looks to be pretty much the same as lino (just harder!)  I really like the way wood looks too Smiley
