Second Color From Now On
Today I carved again and began working with the second color. You can see lots of gomazuri (speckling) here in this first blue layer. For me and my skinny arms, speckling is unavoidable at this size and with this very thick paper. By the time I've added all the layers that I expect to add, the speckles will disappear into an appearance of solid color.
The rest of the colors will be various shades of blue and I expect this will take quite a while to complete. More carving and lots of bokashi (gradations) are planned. Then there are the unplanned things…
But first, a holiday weekend!
