Cabbage Hands, a reduction print in progress



Cabbage Hands in Yellow
Linoleum block print -- two blocks, four colors
8" X 10"
2016

Here's how I did it:


First I carved out all the white areas -- background, cabbage veins, fingernails. 
Then I printed flesh color.



I decided I wanted the option of printing a colored background, so I had to carve a new block for that as I'd already carved out the background on the first block. I printed the background in four colors -- yellow, blue, green, and silver. 

Then I carved out the hands on the first block and printed purple.


I decided that the purple was too dark so I reprinted it in a lighter color.  
Finally I printed the black key block.



This is just the black key block.

BTW, that's Tom's home-grown cabbage and, of course, his hands!

I like he way you didi this linoleum print! My friend a writer at domyhomework.today is fond of making prints. He does some from time to time though they're not as good as yours.
