Woodblock print tests

Happy New Year to everyone!

Tonight I have been working on some test woodblock prints, practicing how to make a woodcut and print it on some small offcuts of boxwood. I'm looking to do a project with a much larger sized woodcut in the near future. Will need alot more smaller tests before I tackle the big one. Quite please with the qualities of the woodcut, will explore more...

And the second one - "Happy as Sad" (test).

I also used the left over ink from the roller plate to make a monotype print: (Monotype: A unique print made by pressing paper against a painted or inked surface. Different from monoprint in that the plate used only exists once.)
