Arts of Japan series : print #2 - printing begins

Posted by Dave Bull at 2:02 AM, June 7, 2012 [Permalink]

Keeping the blog up-to-the-minute hasn't been possible recently, but here's a catchup!

I'm finally busy with the printing work on the second print in the Arts series - the image of the Kamakura Daibutsu. It starts - as all of them do - with the series outline and title, quickly followed by the key outlines of the print itself (the two impressions are here shown together, because I forgot to scan them separately):

And the colour impressions then begin. I think there will be perhaps 15 or 16 of these, but as usual am not quite sure at this point.

The first one is an undertone on the building in the foreground:

And this is followed by the base tone of the greenery:

Hopefully - if I don't get interrupted by the trainees too much - there will be another couple of impressions tomorrow ...
