Hello one and all,I am Chris Doogan. I am a artist living in Brooklyn, NY. I've been printmaking for a bout 20 years. You can view some of my work at The last of couple of years I haven't produced much due to life's many commitments. Now, I am feeling like getting back to making some art, printmaking and painting.I saw this site a while back, I'm very interested in participating in some of the exchanges as a way to get some creative juices flowing and have an interaction with other artists.thanks. chris

It's perhaps not clear at first exactly what has changed, but if you were to put them side by side, you would see that we've had another blue block - this one mostly on the grasses, although touching other areas too, including one of the fish.

These two blue blocks have turned out to be essentially the same tone, which is not what was planned. The mock-up that Seki-san originally gave me had the sea colour much lighter than what you see here. I worked out the separations thus planning for two blues - a very light one for the sea, and a darker one to bring the green to these grasses. But after seeing my first proof, she changed her idea and asked me to deepen the sea to about this level, which has had the side effect of making the plant at left (which is pink plus the 'light' blue block for the sea) the same tone as the fish (which is pink plus the 'heavier' blue used for making the green). But that's something she'll have to accept, unless I chop it off that block and carve another one for it.

Anyway, the grass at bottom now has its 'base colour'. Coming up later is another block for just some of the blades in the bunch, giving a multi-toned effect ... The turtle tail has now reached its final 'olive green' tone, and Taro's pouch is also done I think. For that little area, I didn't really . . .
