Biltmore Tower blockprint

This is an artist's proof of a woodcut I just finished carving. I used ultramarine blue ink on cream Arches printmaking paper. That blue is a new shade -- pretty bold.

It's an image of the Biltmore Tower, in which I worked for a couple of years. It's attached to the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. I took some liberties with this image, but the tower should be recognizable to you who are familiar with it.

Ahhh, the good old days! :-)

Biltmore Tower, linocut, 12" x 10"

Wow. I LOVE this one! The ultramarine blue really pops. Old city buildings are so nice to capture. You did a great job. Looks like a lot of work went into it. Well done! :)
