    Hello Jono, thank you for your kind words.

    Yeah, you’re right. The woodcut scene is currently dominated by excellent artists in England.
    No wonder it was the Englishman Thomas Bewick who revolutionized woodblock prints.

    Thomas Bewick, graphic designer and woodcutter (1753-1828), created a number of works in the final years of the 18th century.
    By the end of the 19th century, all the previously valid form cutting rules were turned upside down and thus revolutionized woodcut.

    Bewick began to stab his figures in brainwood instead of longwood. He used boxwood discs sawn across the trunk.
    Instead of the previous knife, he used a grave prick with a V-shaped cross-section.

    If you have the opportunity, join one of the many woodcut workshops.
    It’s an experience you never forget and it’s fun too. This gives you awe of the skills of the old and new masters.

    Cheers Ernie

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    So, here we go with the R. . . by A. Dürer.
    I have decided to always post the last picture first and the current one second. So you can follow better what has changed or what is new.

    I will mention it again it is a horrible, time consuming job. But I wanted it that way.

    (The root meaning of 'passion' is suffering, enduring)
