Look at that ... after finishing the print, and getting it into the drying boards, I got so involved with the next work that I forgot to update this RoundTable with the final series of images.
Here they are ... The next impression was one of the easiest ones on the whole design - a cascade of embers coming off the fire basket:
This next one could have come back near the beginning just as well ... the outlines go in place:
And for the final touch to the image itself, we add the smoke with a final block - touched with a grey brush from above and below, to leave a white blur in the middle ...
All that's left is to add the karazuri embossing around the border, and she'll ready to head out to the waiting collectors. (I sign and seal them after they come out of the drying boards ...)
