First two layers of reduction cut “Parking lot snow mountain”

Thanks to all of my family helping out taking care of my son, and thanks to my son for the inspiration, I am working on a new print. It’s a mostly a reduction cut, but some layers are inked in more than one color, such as this first one in yellow and blue:

1st layer yellow and blue snow mountain

And this second layer is all the same color purple, but the area printed over the yellow uses paste to make a smoother color and the area printed over the blue does not use paste, to create more texture for the snow. IMG_0399

This is an homage to the lingering winter we’ve been having, and the pleasure of exploring the temporary urban wilderness created by the piles of snow at the edges of parking lots. I am hoping to print one or two more layers this morning.
