"This and the Moonlight color scheme of the same design are now complete and drying, and will be commercially available from the end of March. This was a very complex print with both versions requiring almost 30 printings to get the variety of colors and tones, plus there’s a lot of bokashi hand shading as well as special printing techniques to achieve the atmosphere of the place. I love these ramshackle, casual steps, they were my first introduction to Black’s Beach." March 4, 2020
