Does anyone else remember that when I started this little print I said it was just going to be two colors? (sigh) At this point I think I'm stopping at the next run, which will be the fourth color. But it's always hard to say. As the image evolves I always get new ideas.
You might notice that this third color doesn't extend to the bottom inch of the print. That entire shadow area in the foreground will be a different, darker, color, so it wasn't necessary to let this one cover the entire plate. I could have cut a mask and kept this color out of the lower half completely... and if I intended this to be more than five colors I might have done so. But I think it will be just fine once the fourth (last?) color goes down.
