Eight Colours down- One to go
Printed the main blue for the dark plumage of the Oystercatcher and so far so good. Only the final dark to go now. I know most printmakers, when asked in interviews will say that cleaning up is the thing they hate most about the process. I quite enjoy cleaning up between colours, it gives me time to think and plan the next move. For me, I find printing the final colour the worst part. With a reduction print so much depends on getting the last printing right. Get it wrong and there is no recovery.
