Gestural woodcut

This is a new approach. I took an old life class sketch, which I had rather forgotten about, and just made a quick, brush pen copy of it onto the back of my Olympia woodcut from yesterday. Then I just cut just white lines, trying to vary the width and depth of cut in one movement. Similar to gestural drawing, but in a much more restrictive medium. I like the result and I’ll try more of it.
