In this piece, the distant part was made in my new iron indigo vat. I love the grayness in this very pale blue. The foreground was dipped in the thiox vat which gives darker blues quicker than the the iron vat. I developed this technique of dipping paper into a vat of indigo dye and moving it in ways to make the image. The papers are dipped multiple times over a number of days to add complexity and to take advantage of the fact that the indigo vat is constantly changing. The paper reflects the fact that it has been wet. Because the paper has been freed of its flatness, I recommend suspending the image inside a frame of matting so that the edges show.
