"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."

So far counting all the colours used in the blends I've put down 12 colours in 7 stages. One final bit of cutting and a last dark will finish the print.
