Dancing in the Garden: First Proof

This is the first proof for the first print intended for my next book project, Dancing in the Garden. It will be a series of white line woodcuts of four particular children dancing in the stunning landscapes of the Morris Arboretum.

This print is definitely not a finished version. I need to play around with the colors and get a crisper overall registration. But I like the drawing on the block and many of the color interactions. It starts to give a sense of what I'm going for, which is a cheery, folksy,  mosaic of children in motion embedded in an array of outdoor plantlife.

Okay, back to work...
