White-line woodcuts are multicolor images printed from a single block of wood. Also called Provincetown prints, they hover between monoprints and Japanese-style multi-block woodcuts. These images were generated in AI, and reworked from printouts. They were then hand-transferred to the woodblock, hand-carved, and hand-painted.
