"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."

Snowdrops Colour 2

I am deliberately trying to keep this print much simpler in both design and execution than in previous ones. I've printed the second colour and now all is becoming clearer, only two more colours to go, a darker green and then a final dark for the background. The ghost of a drawing on the print is from the chinagraph pencil that I drew the image onto the block with. That should disappear after the next colour is printed.
