This Nude I did in May last year, as part of TAFE. I’ve heard this method described as ‘Javanese Painterly Method’.

Whatever it’s called, it was introduced to me by Anita Laurence. It involves carving simple lines into board (such as MDF), then painting onto the board with Acrylics (for the fast drying time), and then hand burnishing the paper on the board to pick up the print. So it’s a painterly printmaking method.
