|Reduction linocut in progress: Step 3|
Sorry about all the glare on the inked block. Wet ink + overhead lights = bad photography.

I'm jumping through a few mental hoops now, trying to decide what the next step is. I'm fairly certain that I will go ahead and finish the water. I hesitate because the birds all need light gray beaks, which will be a little harder to get back to once I put in the darker water. (And, okay, because I'm impatient and want to jump on ahead to something other than a few more hours of water carving.) But I think it will be important to preserve the transparency of the water as much as possible.
It's shirt-sleeve weather here today but there's snow arriving tomorrow that looks like it might continue through Tuesday. As long as I have enough hot chocolate here to sustain me, I'll be quite content to ride out the storm in the studio.
