The Faux Woodblock technique is one of risk and reward where the original painting is completely covered in a layer of India ink and then sprayed with water. The outcome and quality of the painting is entirely dependant on the timing of the ink removal. Even after doing over a hundred of these paintings, I still feel uncertainty in what the final result will bring. The final product is an image rich in colour and texture. This alteration in the appearance of a painting is style that I have been developing over the last few years. While these paintings are reminiscent of the traditional woodblock prints of Japan, each is hand crafted from an original illustration.
