More work on the fish
Colour 3 on this print, the base colour for the fish, is a monoprint blend of 3 tones dabbed on to the plate with a brush and then printed. Its a bit haphazard and as with any monoprint each one has come out slightly different.
Colour 4 begins to establish the shapes of the fish and adds the lightest tones to the river bed.
Colour 5 and we are adding more colour to the river bed. With the first attempt at this sort of subject matter, I printed the stream bed quite uniformly. With this one I want to give more of an impression of the water deepening towards the top of the print. So I am trying to keep the foreground quite light in tone.
