Mother and Calf. First proof.

Inked block on the press and then the first proof. Whale and Calf. 13 x 19.25 inches.

More snow and more whales.

Here are some more whale prints that I've been working on the last couple of weeks.
I didn't like the lines on the bigger whale so I used Kwik Wood to fill in the lines and then recarved them. Still not happy but since I have done this whale over 3 times now..... I may just trash it and start it over from scratch
Third and final proof of "Humpback Whale" 12x19 inches. Its a keeper!
Whale and Calf. 13 x 19.25 inches - Raw Block - first state.
And now to do a proof of the above plate to see if I've got it right!
