Carrizo Plain: Purple Haze

Fourth colour. This time I followed Natalia Moroz's method of gently pressing a piece of copy paper over the freshly printed image to minimize the gloss of the ink. I actually like the sheen of the ink as it dries but it isn't consistent and the image picks up a subtle blotchiness. Blotting the print a bit makes actually still leaves most of the sheen but makes it more uniform.

I wish I could print during the week as well and not just on weekends. The number of colours still left to go increases with each colour I print; last week it was three or four, now I know I still want at least five more from this point. And I already have ideas for the next block I want to do.
