Every time I do a black clayboard engraving I tell myself that I will fool around and practice coloring them with ink. But then, after many hours of scratching in a design, I am too chicken to colorize it, worrying that I will just wreck it and all that work will be lost.
That kind of cowardice is no way to practice! I need to fail more in order to progress. Oy, but it is hard. Anyways, here is the start of a new board, which was supposed to be practice but... now I'm feeling that same timidity about inking it. We shall see.
