oban reduction print from single basswood block with Prussian blue and neri-zumi (black)
Blue Robe – first aizuri-e attempt
This image of Dana turning in my yukata was my first attempt at aizuri-e (blue printed picture). I used only shades of blue in this Japanese technique woodblock print (moku-hanga). Later efforts included sumi or other blacks in order to increase the depth of darkest printings.
