So many thanks to Laura who v. patiently showed me how to monoprint over my wood cut. The result is good. I am going to cut out a new block to recreate the effect above. I like the immediacy using the monoprint technique and it has definitely shown me how to rescue the sky in this print.

So a few more colours added and I decided to stop. The sky contrast has come out stronger than I wanted and I need to add more detail to the sand but am taking some time to consider how. I may attempt some monoprint on top next week. Any ideas?

I have a bit of a love hate thing going on with skies. I love sketching sky but printing not so much. Hair and sky are my nemesis, I can't draw hair and I can't print skies to my satisfaction. So I have been practising various techniques before embarking on my next print which is very much about the sky.
