First Proof of "Asleep in the Chair"

Last year I did a series of simple, small eight male nudes in white line woodcut, and this is the first print building off that work. I'd like to eventually have a series of larger nudes where the background is more elaborate and interacting with the figure.

I love the drawing in this print, but the colors in this first proof doesn't work. Sometimes with white line woodcuts I just need to print a couple before I really figure out what colors work.

Even though the image is only 12" x 15" it took over 4 hours just to print once. (My hand is killing me.) So I think I'm going to spent some really contemplating the next set of color choices before I go forward printing a second.
