Hand behind the tool. Don't slip. Practicing curves, wood chip in my eye. Soon I've got to walk across the park and it will be dark on our return, time for tea and pajamas and duplo and hopefully not tantrums. But for 20 minutes longer the (fading) light belongs to me.

More woodblock printing today. Same blocks but after reading a few books and watching lots of YouTube videos I tried less water, better soaked paper and lots more ink. Gouach this time, not watered down and painted but straight from the tube and mixed on the plate with a little stubby brush (marubake). Getting there. Now I need to cut more wood...
