Valley of Fire I a new moku-hanga adventure

Here are all the stages of my newest woodblock adventure. The Valley of Fire State Park (Nevada, USA) is an amazing little place, close by with views to savor endlessly, colors beyond imagination, a variety of desert to delight all, and the background music of perfect silence.

After printing all the basic colors, I reprinted the umber to strenghthen the foreground details and also reprinted the lower portion of the key block in a rustier purple.

These are on proof paper:
