"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."

Sunset Print

The next three colours work on building up the sky. All use the same initial orange mix gradually darkened with increasing amounts of purple.

Once the sky is finished I print a pale grey over the remaining block. With apologies for the shine from the still wet ink. 

The pale grey is followed by a darker version of the same colour. By now the subject should be apparent.

I think another three colours should see the print finished.
