It’s hard to shift gears and revisit a print with issues, but I hope to be able to save it since the show is days away.
Hidden under piles of other print materials, I managed to locate all the reference paperwork for the image. I work from a color, black and white plus a previous version of the print, drawing directly onto the screen to help guide screen filler application. It was wonderful to use proper base extender for color 5 and leave behind the sticky ink issues. But will the new extender be able to overcome the previous mishaps? White could solve it but I’ll lose the transparency. More to ponder. Below is the 5th color applied.
His toe pads are showing through along with the full side of his flank. This print might just make it through the process and have an interesting textural quality to some of the layers. I think white might enter into the next color.
