My value shifts were not dramatic enough to really push the coat changes (which makes it readable from a greater distance). So, now I ponder creating one more screen using a drawing and photo emulsion.

Below is the full run of changes made to the print thus far with their color.

The texture of the paper certainly influences how ink is deposited.


One more round and Blue Dog will be finished…. I hope!
