Suited for Surfing
My little tai chi surfer guy's outfit just didn't seem right for the occasion. Too drab, so I've changed the fabric. Because I had already laid down my blacks, I was printing red on top of black and the damp block picked up black ink on each pass. I didn't want black to mix into my red, so I had to clean off the block after each impression.
Looking at the piece now, I think that it needs more weight at the bottom to balance out the strength of the figure, so I plan to heavy up the wave with a bokashi at the bottom. Trying to decide if I want to simply make it a darker blue or if I want to warm it up a little to go with the warm colors of the figure.
