Next Nursery Print

This is the sketch for the third print in the nursery rhyme series.  

I printed the first pass last Sunday,

but didn't finish clearing all the background away in time to print another colour today.  I'm really enjoying the carving this time so I'm not rushing it.  

I've also been working out some ideas and preparing blocks for a few other, "non-kid" prints.  The first is based on a photograph taken in the garden a couple of summers ago.  

This will be the second print I do of this rooster, the first being one of the very first prints I ever did, and I'd like to try something a little different with the print this time.  I've purposely kept the sketch minimalistic and hope to work in more detail as I carve.
