These 3 small works on watercolour paper c. 9 x 12″ are the more successful of the 6 I started yesterday.
This morning I rolled them first. Then scratched some fresh marks and printed over a new layer of paler blue using greaseproof paper. Then a scrape smooth again with a squeegee and a few marks with a knife to suggest the birds
