Arts of Japan series : print #6 - printing steps 11~13

The first impression this morning was the one that I had primarily in mind when doing the colour design for this image - the main tint for her kimono. I used a moss green, and did it with a gradation (top down) over the pale brown base tone.

This has long been a favourite combination of mine, and I have been looking forward to using it again. It gives a very subtle result, but I don't want any 'in your face' tones in this print; as I mentioned back at the beginning, this will be a quiet one ...

Having said that, here we come with the most overt tone in the image - a tint on the striped pattern of her obi:

And for the last one this evening ... well, if I don't point it out to you, you might not even notice it ...

That leaves us with three left I think ...

The last one is on the tatami, yes?
