"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Augustus John, R.A.

Second Colour

If I really knew what I was doing I would have thought about this before diving in head first. It was only after I had carved away all the first colour, that I realised just how difficult I had made things. With so much of the block gone, there was very little left inked up to hold the paper. Not so much of a problem if I was using a press, but rubbing with a baren there was always the chance of the paper slipping. Anyway with some careful printing so far so good.

Ooh, yeah... been there, done that. (Removed more material than comfortable for printing.) Much care and steady breathing required from here on out! You can do it!
