Well, I know it’s quite a bright looking yellow on the glass plate, but when it’s printed over the two browns it will calm down a bit. This is colour layer number three – a touch of yellow to give some feathers a highlight and colour to the eyeball. I’ve mixed Intaglio Printmaker inks – Lemon Yellow and Warm Red (a tiny bit of this) just to add a bit of depth to the yellow. Still I’d better get a move on or February will be over before I know it.
Here’s the lino rolled and ready to print
Colour Layer Number 3
Only another four or five, Hmmm, maybe 6 layers to go!
