Here is the first color printed, a mixture of yellow ochre, titanium white and Perfection Palette Process Yellow (from Graphic Chemical). Sorry the color is off a bit in these pieces. I took the pictures late in the day, usually around 8 or 8:30 when the sun was going down or already down:
I then carved away a bit more to outline my sun. It's still a yellow ochre/PPP Yellow mix, but more yellow ochre. I love that Lucy's white face is starting to peep out of the color!!!
And here is the third reduction, where I carved away everything I wanted to stay yellow, and then printed with a mixture of PPP Yellow, a bit of titanium white and GC Block Print Green. The color is off a bit in this photo (I actually printed on bright white Stonehenge paper, and in the pic it is ice blue -sigh) but the green came out a bit darker than I had thought it would. I wanted it more spring-y. Oh well. Maybe I will try to put in highlights? It's so hard to print light-on-dark though.
I hope to get another reduction done this week, but once reunion starts Thursday, I will be at work from 7 am-11 pm through next week. We'll see. I'm sooo hoping I don't ruin this one...
