Second color mock-ups...
I like to map out my color flats before I make new plates and before I mix my ink. Usually I watercolor directly on a black and white print (pulled during the first etch on the stone) but because I already had these these two drawings scanned in the computer I decided to play with color in Photoshop.
It is always fun to compare the final with the preliminary color mockups.
"A" was using the press this morning and I had to run errands so I will need to print tonight. We usually alternate times. He's a morning person and I like to work into the night (less interruptions). Pronto plates print sooo fast so this should be possible. I am targeting to finish the color on about 9 of these small editions by this coming Tuesday.
