Mystique Series #11 : printing steps 7~8

Now it jumps to life, with the base tone for the sea, and interestingly, right away the kimono colour turns 'duller' and loses interest. None of these tones really make sense until everything is in place. It's fun too, that we get both positive and negative bubbles from the one block ...

Overprintings here include the little plant at the left which has become lilac, one at the right which is now very light green, and of course on the grass at the bottom, most of which will receive another touch later, and parts of which will get two more ...

And I think this image is perhaps too small to see it, but a mistake is now visible ... Nothing dramatic, and it will be mostly covered up later, but a mistake nonetheless.

And the second overlay on the turtle:

This uses exactly the same pigment as the undercoat, but a little denser.
