WESTERN ART COLLECTOR July Issue 2013
A page article on the upcoming book, THE ROYAL ROAD with an opening at Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe on July 12.
Part of the MERIDIAN Exhibit, only one print remains in the studio. I did the watercolor sketch for this in September 2012 as the fields yielded an acceptable amount of hay bales for a dry year. Even though 2013 was a wet summer, the fields yielded maybe half the amount as the fields were too marshy to run a tractor through them.

“Brooklyn Bridge a la Cristo”
A new woodblock of New York printed in the Sosaku Hanga technique.
The first block drawn in and ready for carving.
The print after four color runs.
After the fifth color run, the darks start to appear.
Look for more images as more color runs are printed.
This spot is not really accurate with the roller as the ink is applied with brushes for the moku hanga process.
The Watercolor Primer Workshop was a great success with students learning to apply large washes and control them. Next on the schedule is a four day plein-aire workshop in Aspen.
A new woodblock is underway. The pastel sketch is from the 3Perspectives Exhibit and is of the cloud shadows along Loveland Pass. I’ve thought about this for a while and finally decided to print the image using the moku hanga techniques.
The block measures 18” x 12” and I am hoping for an edition of 20+.
So why use the moku hanga technique? The process uses an ink made of rice paste, water and pigment which is applied to the block with brushes instead of rollers. Brushing the ink onto the block allows for gradations and color changes on a single run. The process also can print three to four color runs in one long day. Oil based inks need to set up after two color runs.
