Tried an ochre/sienna colorway, and in the process I worked out the carving order. I don't know if the monotone made it clear to my brain, or if the hind brain worked it out in my sleep. But suddenly I get it. Just about ready to make a cartoon and start carving.
Working on composition and colorways.
Which order the colors go in, etc.
As fun as this is, I have to stop displacing now and try something out on a block. I need to make some tests and just see which colors go over which best. Ink is going to act differently than pastels.
But it's awfully suductive just to play with my pastels. ;-]
