      This is a picture of a lady relaxing, it was my first technical exercise with the wood engraver Edwina Ellis, who during the course I was attending made a profound statement which i will practsie for ever more which was:-  

Don't forget that wood engraving is about Proofing and Improving'

And this print went through 14 different stages before I was happy with the result. So thats 13 proofs, after each proof i would cut more from the block, then proof again.
