Towers at Dusk
Woodcut – Image Size 8 X inches
The artist has this to say: “ I have always liked the rounded shapes of water towers next to the straight lines of building walls and windows, and the way the sky shapes appear around the buildings. Towers at Dusk shows towers in the late afternoon, with the sun going down. The image was carved on two Shina 3/8 inch plywood blocks and printed on Rives Heavyweight paper (175 grams.) It was proofed in my studio using Graphic Chemical inks on a Martech etching press. Kathy Caraccio printed the edition.”
