Of course once I decided, the universe conspired to keep me from working. I didn't have enough paper on hand to start a large piece, so I gave myself "a few more days" of break and ordered paper.
Correction. I backordered paper. Supplier out of stock.
After a few days delay I received notice that a portion of my order was enroute. It would be enough to manage an edition, so I drew up my block and organized my tools....
And the paper arrived damaged.
Luckily I had placed a second order from a different supplier when the first order went AWOL, so the new delay was only another two days... but GEEZ.
|Step 1: Yippee! Mysterious new lino finally underway.|
|Step 2. That's rather obnoxious, isn't it?|
The third step involved a solid but very transparent blue rolled over the entire block.
|Step 3. Dare I say it? A sigh of relief after the next color was pulled.|
And yes, you are correct. This is a landscape! Not. One. Bird. In fact, it is mostly sky. I don't believe I have ever done a piece with this much sky... and I'm certain I've never tried a sunset before. I'm excited about what's happening on the left side of the image in particular... I hope I can hold it together until the finish.
