Spannocchia window

Woodcut print from a photo of a window at Spannocchia, near Siena, Italy. I am still reworking this one. I’ll change the areas on the sides of the window and probably do a multicolor print.

In this woodcut print I was experimenting with raising the natural grain in the background by rubbing between the lines of the grain. I did a lot of these and feel rather ambivalent about the results.

I learned a lot from these two.
