This is a reproduction print of a woodcut reduction print titled 'Wilson’s Warbler'. Yumi digitally captured the image and printed it on a beautiful inkjet on Japanese Bamboo paper.
"Wilson's warblers migrate to spend summers in Alaska from Mexico and Central America. The male has a distinct black cap on the top of his head, and the female has an olive-colored crown. They are well camouflaged in willow brush when the leaves turn yellow in fall. How many Wilson's warblers can you find in the image?" - Yumi Kawaguchi
For creating the original image, Yumi hand-carved and hand-printed it as reduction, using one woodblock total for 8 colors (7 layers of colors). She placed the lightest color first, then carved the block to the areas, in which she wanted to print the different colors. Yumi repeated this process until the block had only the area for the last color, black, so only areas for birds’ blackcaps were left on the block.
