gelliclopedia - gradient colors

I wanted to see what happens when you use 2 colors in 1 layer instead of layer upon layer.
I experimented with mixing 2 colors and placing 2 colors next to each other:

  • shades of the same color, in this instance green:

  • contrasting colors:

I like the blots of color in the first column of prints.
The second column has a gradient effect,
I elaborated on the gradient style by applying 3 stripes of paint: 

 I really enjoy this experimenting, it's just playtime, no overthinking, just painting up the plate and making prints, great to clear my head and get rid of any stress.
What do you do to relax?
