Should be able to complete this print over the coming week. The colours have come out a bit fresher and bolder than I had originally planned, perhaps this is the La La Land effect. Having said that, the key block is still to come and that may desaturate colours.
Pleased with the consistency and how clean this edition is. I've also managed to make the edition 30 prints rather than the usual 25 so I hope it is popular.
The first 10 prints from my 100 views series can be seen in an exhibition at the Birmingham & Midland Institute on Margaret St, Birmingham.
I've started with the mid tones and I will work lighter and darker layers in over the top.
Hoping to do a simple time lapse video for this print so that the effects of transparent layers can be seen more clearly.
This is the topic of my next print. I was taken by the changes in scale, with the cranes seeming toy-like in the background and the temple seeming large compared to the foreground houses and the library building further away.
The colour is also of interest to me and I'm hoping to use light key blocks on top of dark layers and vice versa.
