Ben #3 - Mixed Media

This is the second of three dog pieces I have been working on.  This happens to be the third of three versions of this piece. In the first print of this series I started by gluing tissue paper to lay out some of the areas of color and then I created a separate plate to print the dog and some of the other textures. In this case I did not start with tissue paper, but printed color on the dog and background first. The next step was to print the textured B&W plate. Following this step I started layering texture and color in the border. I created a fourth plate to print additional texture on the dog.  The final step was to add tissue paper which defined the fabric. This keeps changing so it could change again.  The blue seems a little too bold.  I am tired of looking at it so here it is for now.  I need to move on for a while.
My sister just might recognize this guy.
