I was commissioned to create this collagraph for a client several years ago. The version I did at that time had a gradated orange to yellow background. I had a couple of black and white versions sitting around and decided to see what would happen if I worked with cooler colors. I think there are about 8 different layers of color and texture on this background. It just took a long time to get it to a place that seemed to work.
