Sunflower Print by Artist Adron

This handmade print of a sunflower is a real beauty.

It takes 5 blocks to run a project like this one plate for each color. I carve the blocks by hand. With each new block I have to keep going back to make sure they will all register correctly so the picture won't have large gaps and huge color overlaps. I have to ink each block and print them individually on the paper and make sure they are dry before I go to the next color. Since I am doing these by hand it takes a long time. It took a day to print 10 and I had to discard two for smudges.

I have a revised version this in watercolor and acrylic at my online art store. You can see it here.
