Spring Growth

"Spring Growth"

I was experimenting again this week with printing inks.  I left too much ink on the glass and it turned out really dark.  I had planned to use colored pencils as I had with last week's print, but the print was too dark for that medium.  I decided to use pastel but the paper I used is very fragile and it started pilling and getting very fuzzy.  Even with the pastel I still couldn't get the onion to feel light enough so I added some gouache as a final accent. 

I need to find a better printing paper to use in the future if I want to add a lot of color.
