"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."

I've not quite given up on the mini print exhibition yet, so I've started another image. I printed this first colour and then had an idea. Inspired by the japanese woodcut masters, who often made multiple editions from the same blocks by using different colour combinations. I decided to make another set of prints from this block.

Print 1. Colour 1.
After printing the colour above I darkened the mix and printed a set as below.

Print 2. Colour 1.

Next stage on the print was a light yellow brown colour.

 Print 1. Colour 2.

And on the second print a darker blue grey.

Third stage on the first print was a pale mauve grey colour.

 Print 1. Colour 3.

And on the second print, continuing with a darker blue grey mix.

Print 2. Colour 3.
