Here's the "easy-cut" block with the drawing on it. I usually outline everything with a black Sharpee marker first, so all the details stand out.
I also use a template to mark each layer so they will match up when I print the subsequent colors.
Here is the first color, printed by hand, on Rives Light paper using Akua inks.
Layer 2 is a blend of two colors that make up the sky and some of the brown background. You can see the areas that are cut away so the first color shows through.
Layer 3--- green and gray
Layer 4---more green
Final Layer--the inked plate
The finished design---"Vineyard View"
Maybe I should open up that bottle of wine I brought back from California, to celebrate!
