"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."

Colours 10 and 11

Although the last colour printed had brought the print to life, I felt that the colour was too dark on the left side of the hill below the castle. So I printed a paler green colour across this area and then a darker blue green on the trees below the castle and on the distant hillside. This part of the print is now more or less complete apart from some shadow areas in the trees. All that remains now is some very carefull printing on the breakwater in the foreground.
