*I am re-uploading this picture. Sorry about the hassle T_T*

This is a relief print I did for my BFA Senior Exit Show. It is made using a five layer reduction. I started with a bottom layers as a flat blend roll on the bottom from grey to transparent. I continued to use blends in almost every layer but with a lot of transparency in the ink, so that the bottom layer would continue to affect the layers on top.

This series is about my ideas of spirituality, Buddhism and nature. The idea of the forest as a temple and the idea of mystery.

This print is 3ft x 2ft and is printed without borders on Japanese kitakata paper.

I never learned how to blend colors to get a gradient back when I took printmaking. Is it as simple as rolling two different inks on thick at the ends and getting thinner as you approach the middle and lay one over the other? Or is there a more defined technique to it?

Generally you want an even thickness of ink across the entire block. You can control opacity by doing blends with transparent base. What is exciting about layering transparent blends on top of each other is that they interact with the layers underneath creating the illusion of greater complexity.
