Playing with ink

Such a fun day in the studio today. I was playing with different coloured inks and ways to apply them. First time I've used an actual press since before Italy. They were an excellent invention. Thirtytwo prints later and I could still use chopsticks to eat dinner after I was finished. Can't wait for these to be dry enough to paint.
