I've just spent over a week fighting off a cold; I tried very hard to work on this block but I just developed a stonking headache, so that was that till today. I feel a lot better now and was more than keen for another fruitful session engraving.
I'm enjoying playing with textures on the roofs and walls. I haven't yet decided how to tackle the squally shower coming in, watch this space! It won't be too long before I try a trial proof, to see how the cutting's getting along. Some places on the block I think will still be too dark and the purpose of proofing is to pinpoint any areas like that so that you can deal with them.
