In order to get to this as a final image, I first went through a multitude of different versions, on tracing paper, transparent paper, moving the ink around the surface of the transfer. Although these were interesting experiments, I ended up coming back to the original images and starting from scratch again to find the particular, mediated quality I was after.

Here  is an example (above) of the images created by ‘smudging’ the wet ink on the surface of the transfer,  abstracting the subject and giving it a painterly feel.
