Linocut Print

This image made a beautiful journey from a pencil layout to the grooves of a block
and finally landed, in bright purple and black, on a deliciously textured archival paper.
The text is a line from a Tagore song:
I am running way behind my normal blogging pace as printmaking and some
painting assignments are leaving me with hardly any time to post.
To see more photos of my printmaking work from my Printmaking-Guru
Ramendra Nath Kastha's studio, visit my FB page.
None of this would have been possible if it hadn't been for
a wonderful teacher who never fails to inspire.
Thank you readers, for your patience - your visits, (even the quiet ones) mean a lot to Deezden.

I have always been intrigued with the eyes in your paintings.. they are the same big sultry vivacious but quiet ones.. but look so different each time..

Dithi said...

OMG! That's one detailed carving! I have seen and even tried mini images but yours is very complex. Every thing you do, you take it to the next higher level. Looking forward to more of your prints! PS: Would you mind sharing a video of how you do such a detailed carving, especially the Devanagari script backwards?
