This is a very accessible image originally introduced to workshop members by visiting artist Vinita Voogd a Californian artist. She has developed a remarkable three layer technique using process cyan, magenta and yellow inks, which when overprinted gives a rich black.

Using a clear piece of plastic sheet and working on a light box, she inks the plate up in yellow and prints that.

Then successively the magenta and blue is overprinted. Some of her prints are very large indeed and may take a day to ink up one plate.
