Baby Grand is done!

Wow I've never worked so hard on such a small print!
I experimented with waterbased inks, transparent bases, layering and just in general had a GRAND time making something so big, so small.

Here are all nine blocks of the Baby Grand printed, each adds a little something until the final result looks almost like a tiny painting:
1. Key block
2. Underpainting of blue
3. Forest green
4. Underpainting of tanish
5. Violet
6. Umber/sienna
7. Deep purple
8. Umber
9. Reduce and reprint key on foreground
