New stuff in the works!

I love printmaking. It is such a unique way to make art!
I started on these doves today and took a few pictures to show you how they are created

 I started by drawing my design directly on the block, 
keeping in mind that when it is printed the image will be reversed

 Then bit by bit I used my woodblock tools to cut away the areas that I want to stay white.
This part of the work takes a lot of concentration, because it's never fun to
accidentally cute where you don't mean to!

I will be sure to keep showing you my progress :o)
