 Having added more sawdust to the tree collograph plate, I have been anxious to print from it and see if it looked better than before.  It does, but I will have to start again with a new plate, as the brush strokes in the sky area are too obvious. This above is the inked and rubbed back plate ready for the first print.
 It's certainly better in terms of light and dark, but those brush marks left in the sealant are just not right!
Just for fun I tried another print with a change of colour, from black to burnt umber. For now however, it's back to the raw materials to construct another plate from scratch.
