Variations based on an original substrate image

I am having a ball hand-tinting these black and white prints of Non-Indigenous Women.  I just got out my microns and started doodling on top of my edition.  I'm having a child-like experience remembering coloring books and how much fun they were. The BFK takes watercolor well.  Changed over from white to creme BFK.  The print with the white background has only been hand-tinited but not drawn back into. Going to sign them tonight.  Meanwhile, we are having incredible weather right now and the garden is still producing great kale, carrots, beets, lettuce and now beans.

New edition over Spring Break...

This was a great time to catch up in the studio.  Took the time to experiment and print.  Getting ready for Frogman's this July.  Want to experiment more when I get back.   Meanwhile getting ready for MKE!!!!

Hand-tinted Color print

After I hand-tinted the color I printing a lithographic flat of creme tint-base to make the paper more tonal.
