I worked on the linocuts yesterday. I like the way the black and white print turned out. There are not really any decisions for this print, just ink and go. Still, the reverse print always is a bit of a surprise after looking at the block.
I had to think somewhat for the watercolored version. How much and how dark to make the colors is always the main decision. I varied the green some to add depth and added some maroon/pink flowers. The real question I had was if I should color in the studio building at all. I left it yesterday with all of the vegetation done, but the building the stark paper white. It appealed to me that way somewhat, but I knew I’d want to look at it again later with fresh eyes. Today it seemed a bit much so I lightly added color for a stuccoed effect.
