I pulled this one again yesterday, trying my brightest paper. I've decided to do two different editions of this, one on the brown and one on the natural. I'm excited to have a print just about ready to pull finish copies. I carved just a little today, to clean up the overlap on the right side, and I'm going to start pulling finished prints (hopefully) tomorrow. I did the green layer for my Overton Park print today, and if they turn out, I'll have two prints completely finished and ready to go.
It's taken a lot longer than I'd thought, but this is all a new process for me. The nice thing is, I'm still completely excited about the series in spite of the setbacks. I'm even dreaming about them at night.
