In November, I proofed the first plate of another two-plate linocut of Mont St. Michel. In December, I trialed a number of combinations with a second color, using a plexiglass monoprint plate to ink, etc.
|Starting with a simple, solid roll-up..|
|Printing the ghost of the roll-up achieved a subtler color. In some ways, closer to what I envisioned...|
|While trying to find the right shade, I pulled out the color in the middle-ground...|
|Also tried printing color in only the sky...|
|Finally pulled out the carving tools and cut the second plate|
