"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."

Rockcliffe Bay

There has been quite a bit of progress on the Rockliffe print since my last post. After printing the 2nd colour I mixed up a pale blue and printed.

 Next colour was a dark sand, marginally darker in tone than the blue.

Then a second blue to finish off the sky and add more colour into the sea.

Then the first green, this looks quite garish in the photo, trust me it looks better on the print. In any case not much of it will show in the finished print.

Colour 7 is a dark blue green for the shadowed parts of the island and distant headland.

Colour 8, a darker tone of colour 7 is  printed across the centre of the block.

to more or less finish off the background.

Next to work on those rocks down the centre of the beach, which so far I have more or less been ignoring.
