Jack Newman block printing

This is Jack's first attempt at making a woodcut block print.
He started with a simple, clear fish design, before transferring it to his wood block.
Next he thought about the parts he didn't want ink on (not part of the image he wanted to create) and we started to cut those bits away.
It's important to keep our holding hand behind the cutting hand!  Jack demonstrates this really clearly in his time-lapse video.  Jack is looking at his print and other prints he likes before choosing 1 aspect he would like to change to improve his print image.



These are a few of Jack's first inkings with a single colour.

  3. Hi Jack, I enjoyed watching the time lapse photography. What a great way to record your learning. I like both your prints the clear detail on the black and the colour choice of the blue. I am looking forward to seeing your next prints and reading about what changes you have made and why.

  5. Hi my name is Maddison in room 10 from Park Estate School. I'm amazed in your woodcut block print design art work. I never knew about anything like this until I saw this wonderful demonstration. Next time is it ok if you don't put it on time lapse? Because when I watch the video it was all over the place. Again I love your Demonstration. Your a wonderful artist Jack.
    Kind regards,
    Maddison
