South Downs linocut, stage 4

Another green blend over the previous layers.

South Downs linocut, stage 4

The greens on this layer are mixed from cadmium yellow with ultramarine blue instead of the cobalt that I used on the earlier layers. Ultramarine is warmer than cobalt; warm colours move to the front of the picture plane, increasing the sense of depth.

Ultramarine blue

One more layer to go.
