Nurse Nancy(print, hand colored)

While I printed my edition of 6, I printed 3 extras to be artists proofs, to hand color. I don't really get all the technical details of artists proofs, and an edition, and what qualifies as either, but not the other, but i'm learning, an I think i have it right here. anywho, I don't know how much I love all the colors on this one, so i may rework some of them before i color the next proof. it may just be the paper it's printed on...great for prints, but maybe not so great for acylic and watercolor?

Oh, I'm super happy with how my prints turned out! For a 1st attempt at lino cuts, I am pleased with the results. (and carving is very relaxing...who knew?!) This is a print edition of 6, on 10"x12 1/2" Stonehenge paper...the design is 8" x 10" . I'm already working up a sketch for the next one!
