Richard has been working hard on a new print, this time focusing on the technique of a reduction woodcut. The image is of the old Rose Bowl building and sign on Route 66/11th street in Tulsa. The block consists of 4 colors, which means that all colors were done on the same block, removing part of the image for each new color. Once you remove a section, the previous color can not be reprinted, because the plate is literally altered.
Richard has also been working on several videos that were made showing the creative process of this print. Hopefully all those videos will be uploaded to his youtube page shortly.
Be sure to check out Richard’s latest print, Bowling On Old 66 at the Oh, Tulsa! Biennial Exhibit at Living Arts.
