Impression #6 - grey overlay for modelling shapes and shadows ... :

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) (block):

Do you think this print is feeling a bit relentlessly grey at the moment? What if I tell you that the next four impressions are still more grey and black! But things will change after that!

The thread continues in [River in Summer - 16] ...
