A Blue Day
Today was all about blue ink. I added a bokashi (blend) at the top of the print for sky and then a broader bokashi at the bottom for water. The bottom bokashi was actually done in two passes so it would be stronger. I wanted the wave (see the wave block here) to seem to be rising up out of the dark blue at the bottom.
Let the blue sky meet the blue sea and all is blue for a time. -MONCY BARBOUR
