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.

This looks like a very exciting project! Two colours, three, four...
Don't forget to post the next stage - and the results (pretty please?)!

Thanks for the comments, Lizzie and Ellen. I got a lot cut on this and ran a proof. I'm a bit disappointed and wish I had followed my line work more closely. Oh well. Still needs a great deal of work and I'll post the outcome. I've got another image in the works and will most likely post that first.

It looks beautiful so far. We artists always have hope, so I can see that it's going to be great! I've moved a lot, and left a garden of peonies everywhere I left. :( Now I live in the South, and it's too hot here for them. I can almost smell them now.
