Duck proof

Hmm, it's not going that well.  Without a deadline, I'm very slack. Still, it is a work in a progress. 

First plate - the parts you cut out will not print (or will show the white of the paper.)

 Sketching to try and get the two colours clearly defined before cutting the plates

 Burnt sienna ducks. This is the plate inked up. I did it with a paintbrush instead of a roller, which may account for the unevenness in the print below.
 Sepia ducks. Second plate inked up in the second colour. (I was too impatient to print the last plate, which will be the background colour.)

Rough proof of the first two plates  together (very rough) printed by hand. Needs some serious work.
