Bowl of Fruit Still Life

Here's a color composition for my next block print. I'm considering using some wonderfully textured mahogany. It'll be a multi-block print. I'm interested in this experiment to see how this will translate into a print because I want to use overlapping colors to create new, yet maintain the intensity and contrast of the compliments.
I scrapped the peony image for now. I ran a proof and wasn't happy with it. I haven't totally given up. It just needs a lot of work and I'd rather proceed with this image. Color kicks my butt. I love it!
Now to Sharpen my tools!

Peonies Woodcut

A friend gave me some maple cabinet scraps so I'm using a vertical piece for my next print. I've been painting my peony in bloom so thought I'd do a 2 color piece, primarily black and white with 1 color, and maybe 1 additional... or 2, or 3. Plans shmlans. This project is growing by the minute. I drew directly on the block so it's a bit of a drawing mess. I like to work it out as I go sometimes. Mistakes become an integral part of it.
