Underprinting

I've carved an "icebergs" block and wanted to experiment with laying down some light undercolors before I print a dense blue for ocean. Here's how the print looked after three colors were printed, yellow, green and red:

Then I added the first layer of blue on top:

Here's a closeup.

I expect to go much denser with the blue in subsequent overprintings, and I'm curious to find out how much these undercolors will show through.
