Japanese Woodblock

Here is my first "Japanese Woodblock" ... it was lots of fun creating it. The image is created with two reduction blocks. One for the background and one for the frame and trees. All together I had nine passes per print in order to create the smoky effect of the background. 
I really enjoyed learning the technique and enjoy the possibility to do the whole process at home. No press is needed, just some special tools which I still have to get.
