[Seacoast in Winter - 7] : Impressions 4 ~ 5

Posted by Dave Bull at 6:23 PM, February 4, 2009

Continued from [Seacoast in Winter - 6] | Starting point of the thread is [Seacoast in Winter]

Step #4 - Here's the next tone on the sky. This is the way it is going to go ... a gradual build-up over five layers. The blocks are all gouged with a v-cutter to put a ragged edge on each boundary area, in a horizontal pattern.

At this stage, the printed area is large, so the missing places are 'cutouts'. As we progress, the printed area will get smaller, and the positive/negative of each block will be reversed ...

Step #5 - The second tone on the water is the same light blue tint as the first. Bits and pieces are cut out here and there, in a pattern that will gradually expand over the next four water blocks (six in all).

The thread continues in [Seacoast in Winter - 8] ...

It is really fun to watch this develop. I am so excited for the next chapter!

at last some cutting. I like the idea of freeing -up with v tools. the foam/spray would be sad to go away. I think (and it is only my penny) the pools to the front may have it! It is what you put in there, below the surface. with the spray behind. only a thought.
My gosh if I could cut like you i would shut up!

Actually, you have that backwards. If (this is said without animosity ...) you could indeed 'cut like me', I would pay a lot more attention to your criticisms!

I agree
I have failed in cutting. That is true.
Excuses could be made. but no.
I feel naughty now.
I follow your work with passion
