"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.

Digging my way out of a hole

Following my last post I've been debating what to do about this print. Having completely messed up with the colour order during printing, I was tempted to abandon the print altogether. However, having slept on it I decided to continue and see if I can salvage something from it. So on with the next colour:


The foreground is now too dark, its going from bad to worse!

Hi Sherrie,

Already done it in a brief burst of creativity this morning. Soon as its dry enough to scan I'll post the result.
