Layer two

I printed up the yellow that was somewhere between a saffron and ochre, then carved out my next layer which was a green. I am printing in oil based inks, so drying times are slow, but this gives me plenty of time to work on the next layer.

I am trying to use dusty colours reminiscent (to me) of the colours of India. I will probably make the blues more purple than a natural peacock, to be able follow this scheme. It will depend largely upon how the lighter blue will sit upon the orange layer that I will be cutting next.
