Artist's comments ...

    Paper: Hosho

    Wood: All-Shina ply

    Ink: Akua Kolor

    Process: Eight colors and ten impressions. Due to the "organic" nature of the scene, I applied most of the colors without rice paste to give the elements a textural effect (tree bark, leaves, and ground). I tried for a smoother application of the sky and did use rice paste with mixed results.

    This was the first time I've printed a large edition (more than three) of a hanga print and it was quite the learning experience.
