Wild Swans

This is my first attempt at relief block printing. I like the different textures you can get but if you mess up when cutting you can't really fix it. It's an illustration of the wild swans story. I'm doing the same scene again for the next assignment but this time bigger. Relief block print, 9 x 12in.
