2 color printing

One of my goals in artmaking is to continually improve my craftsmanship. So far this year, I have put a lot of focus on printmaking. Until now, all my prints have used only one color.

I’m starting a series of Multi-Color prints. The process is similar to single color, except more factors to consider:

Color harmony, registration (alignment), drying times, etc.

I won’t say that every day has been fun or easy, but I love to challenge myself, the bunny below is one of my first multi-color test prints.
