The Dance - Iris and Peony, 2019
Artist: Melrose Tapscott Buchanan
About the Artwork: This is a 2-block woodblock print with gold and silver watercolor and ink enhancements. The images of the Iris and the peony were carved on separate blocks and printed with 2 separate pulls through the press in two colors of ink. The print was then hand-tinted (enhanced) with gold and silver watercolors and inks. This print is part of a series titled Illuminated Flowers. These prints were inspired by my love of Illuminated Manuscripts.
