Comments: I've used kento registration, but the printing is a mix of Japanese and Western styles. The "sky" background is inked with brushes (using black pigment quite diluted) and printed witha press, the "raindrops" block is inked with brushes (using india ink) and printed wtih a baren, and, finally, the "window" block is inked with a roller (using Caligo Black) and printed on a press. The orange is added by hand using gouache.
