Printmaking is a type of art where someone carves an image, covers it in ink and transfers the image onto a piece of paper. Print making was one of the first means of transporting communication. It was created in ancient Egypt.
This is a print of a whale. I found this print at http://anoukandthepencils.com/reliefprints/ . The contrast of the blacks and whites on the print especially in the ocean is very nice. You can see the visible textures in the boat and sky behind the whale. I wonder what types of tools and techniques were used to create this print.
