I pulled finished copies of two different prints today and also did my second color proof for this one. I really feel like this series is coming together. There was quite a learning curve for me, getting used to the press and keeping multiple blocks lined up together, but I'm finally at a place where I can begin to print editions.
I think I maybe want a little bit lighter green for this one, since it's such an all-over color, and I need to clean up the edge of the dome a little, but otherwise this one is also ready to go. It's one of the first ones I started, and I had to put it aside a little while to figure out the multiple blocks thing. It's good to get it worked out. Now all I have to do is reclaim the cherry tree one I was having trouble with, and I'm cooking with gas.
