Better. Mix of transferred oil pastel and ink.
Stronger blacks are good.
Starting to work: the "aquatint" texture of the tissue paper contrasts well with the stronger, drawn lines.

Some simple experiments in monoprinted landscapes, using transfer method. First one is oil pastel on tissue paper, transferred to printing paper. Second one, same media, picks up some detailed texture from the creases in the tissue paper. Third one (most successful) is oil-based printing ink on thin computer paper.
