I've had to wait an inordinate length of time for the ink to be dry enough for the final detailed layer with the two birds. This particular print is an artist's proof with the edition being completed this weekend. This print became a proof (or print that I try things out on) as the first layer of blue was too light and patchy. I like the way the birds change colour as the slightly transparent ink is altered by the background colour and a gradient in the ink.
