This is the second portrait for the Her Legacy mural! It is a 6-color reduction woodcut, and I hope it approaches a semblance of the amazing woman Betty Aragon-Mitotes is! I included images of the process from beginning to end. After the image of Betty is transferred to the wood block, the cutting process begins. I start with the lightest colors first, and after each color is printed, its equivalent shape is cut away as the next color is prepared to print. I did use a bit of masking: this means that I would cut out shapes of paper to protect areas of the evolving print from remnants of the darker colors, so as to protect their integrity. These masking papers act as a protective barrier.
