3 more colours on the new print
Colour 2 on the new linocut - a dirty yellowish grey, slightly darker than the previous colour.
The addition of a little blue gives colour 3. I guess by now you can see where this is going.
Colour 4 doesn't look much but a little pale yellow ochre has been added across the bottom of the print. I am trying to keep all the tonal changes very slight. This is a snowscene, but not the brilliant white and strong blue shadows of a crisp sunny day. What I am after is the dirty yellowish light and flat shadows of a heavy snowfall.
