Watercolours and Woodcuts gallery

My original training was a silkscreen printer (a completely different technique from painting on silk) with studies in textiles at the Sheridan College School of Design. Japanese wood block prints have always been a fascination. I have wanted often to explore printmaking on paper.  Producing an original print with woodcuts is very challenging. A wood printing-plate is created by carving away all areas that will not be printed.  To produce a multi-coloured print, many different plates are used. These woodcuts are printed on Japanese hand-made paper. Unfortunately, this is an art form that is disappearing from the mainstream. I paint watercolours mainly during trips to the back country, when traveling by canoe, and can bring only a small pad of paper and paints. Painting on location is very different from working in the studio as the light keeps changing, but I love this challenge. -- Ofra
