More new work

I finally got busy this week and photographed several recent pieces.

C44AC

This is done from the same set of plates used to produce Tunnel Approach, which I wrote about earlier.  I do not often print the same plates in more than one color scheme, but in this case there was a large value change between the ocher of the original first plate and the yellow of this one.  I felt that the image read quite differently, so it was worth printing it again.  You can judge for yourself.  By the way, this one has been hanging around, unphotographed for a few months.  I completed it in June.

Color Woodcut – 2011

This print is based on an image that I have had floating around in my queue for some time that I had not gotten to until recently.  Interestingly enough, this is the same coal train as C44AC, this image is of the additional locomotive in the middle of the train.  The color scheme here is a good example of neutrals.  The lighter values are shifted a little towards the blue where the dark value is actually quite red.
No, I am not going to all rail imagery.  The next couple of things on my list are completely different.
