Green Heron Lino Color Four
This print started out as an edition of 20. But as I've added colors that has declined to 10 at most. Problems of registration primarily but also of ink that is too thick or too thin cut into the number of prints good enough for an edition.
Sometimes it seems like an awful lot of work. On the other hand when the edition is done and I like what I see then I see the work in a completely different light. Speaking of which, it was too late in afternoon to use natural light to take the photo above. Instead I used incandescent light and you can see both a yellow cast and the raking highlights caused by that artificial light. Perhaps tomorrow I'll take another photo in good light.
One more color, or so it seems at the moment.
