[Forest in Summer - 14] : Adding some colour!

Posted by Dave Bull at 10:31 AM, August 2, 2009

Continued from [Forest in Summer - 13] | Starting point of the thread is [Forest in Summer - 1]

After all the greys and duns, it's finally time to add at least a bit of colour!

As we saw back when the carving was going on, the two blocks that will delineate the grasses are very similar. The first one is printed in a quite light green:

... and the second one overlays much of it with a slightly darker shade:

Then, back to the first block, but this time just with a splash of dark green on the ivy at top left and lower right::

Our print still certainly looks a bit 'dirty', but we'll start to brighten it up soon ... by adding more dark, of course!

The thread continues in [Forest in Summer - 15] ...

Dave, I echo the comments of Barbara Mason. As a beginner I am starting to realise how patient you have to be to create such a masterpiece
