This method of print making made its debut in Provincetown,
Massachusset U.S.A. c.1915.
• There is only one carved block of wood that the
print is made from.
• The image is drawn, in reverse, on the block as
a line drawing.
• The line is carved away with a chisel by hand.
• 100% rag paper is taped to the margin on the woodblock.
• The paper is opened on its tape hinge.
• Watercolor is handpainted onto the carved scene
directly on the block.
• Watercolor dries very fast.
• The paper is lifted down gently to absorb the fresh
paint square inches at a time.
• The image takes shape in a patchwork nature and
can be rendered and over printed.
• The carved line reads white on the print, separating
each color and giving the prints a fresh look.
• Each image is: unique, hand signed, titled, numbered
and can be dedicated .
• All of our editions are under 15.
