White Line Woodcuts

White line labels

…also called Provincetown prints, white line woodcuts are printed with watercolor and gouache on paper. I print or draw the image on paper, transfer it to the wood, and then carve the image , registering the paper with thumbtacks along one side.

The printing process creates monoprints because every print is an original: each carved shape is hand-colored with paint and rubbed into paper. The wooden block can be reused many times, varying colors and printing pressure to create new monoprints.
