Work continues: blocks being cut

Here are the last couple of days worth of work, phew!
Sketch being transferred to blocks by my cat

Willow charcoal to strengthen the lines

Lines gone over with sumi ink, final details changed

A nice bath of walnut ink over the sumi lines to make carving visible

And of course, THE KEY to the puzzle pieces while the walnut ink dries.
Cutting proceeds tomorrow, lord willin' and the creeks don't rise...
