Wood & Ink:
"Landscapes through Wood" by following the grain
To create the "Landscapes through Wood", diversities in wood - grain, lines, pattern, segments or color variations of wood - are highlighted with ink or water color. Any kind of spalted wood and ambrosia maple have high diversity in grain and pattern, but wood types with color variations in heart- and sapwood, e.g. poplar, are also very inviting wood types for this art. Each picture usually consists of one or two wood types. Some pictures are made with a technique called "bookmatching" where two adjoining slices of the same wood create a mirror effect.
