1st print of the season

I'm starting the printing season off with a multiple block print of my Dad, who passed away several years ago, fly fishing on one of our favorite stretches of river, what we referred to as "The Duck Hole".

In the photo above, I've laid out the image, and transferred it to a clear piece of maple. The next step is to carve out the black ink-line. It's tedious, but once done I'll have a master block, called a key block, that I'll be able to base all the rest of the color block off from.
