Since the last print I showed, blue has obviously appeared, this is from the first colour block. I had registration issues which have been largely corrected by adding some tiny wedges of wood into the registration marks, or kento. This was what made this block interesting for me, and in the end very rewarding as I had previously though these adjustments probably a little beyond me. Now I must learn to banish the blotchyness!
I should mention that I have been finding solutions to my many problems in David Bull's wonderful ebook and support forum. If you are reading this because you are looking in to woodblock printing, you should get his ebook if you don't already have it, as it is excellent.
