Comments: This was fun. I used a lino key block to reduce the variation in my line work, since the only wood I have on hand is Luan. The Luan, however, was perfect for the color blocks, which were meant to be irregular and grainy. To achieve the translucent blues and greens, quite a bit of transparent base was added to the Akua Kolors. The edition was printed with a disk baren.
