Three colour collograph

This is the first assignment for Visual Arts Print Making Year 2 
I started by making three collograpgh plates from pasteboard and proofing them to see what I had.
Then came the decision about colours. Because the three plates are printed on top of each other the colour combination is delicate.
After several attempts I found that low contrast worked best. Here is the evolution.
The plates are around 20 x 25 cm - a bit less than A4.

The first three are the proof plates.

I wound up not using the last plate but introduced a fourth plate - stripes on the sides
