Continued from [River in Summer - 7] | Starting point of the thread is [River in Summer]

Although all the kyogo aren't ready yet, I want to get started on the colour block carving. (While I'm working, I'll be thinking about the separations I haven't figured out yet ...)

Had a clear run at it this afternoon, so here is the first finished colour block ... one side (three colours):

... and the other (three more):

For a little 'bonus' shot, here's a closeup of the next one under way. That area of tree is about 5cm long ... it's pretty finicky work ...

The red, as you see it there, is technically not needed - I'm keeping yellow, and removing everything else.

But I've learned that when there are a lot of small areas involved, or places that are in some way confusing, it's very easy to miss parts here and there, so I use the red marker to help ensure I catch them ...
