tourquoise, tumeric, beetroot and trees
Playgroup in the morning. Baby fast asleep. Fire coals sit out on a ledge in the sun ready for tomorrow.
Proofing, experimenting and trying to find the best way to print this plate.
Finally a small success after 8 prints! - the black silhouette of the tree on a lighter background. I have always been a fan of roughly wiped back plates or leaving ghosted wisps of ink. I love the black velvet like embossed tree. I can't wait to complete a little printed edition of this tree.
I found it tricky to get a nice even black tone in the indentation part of the tree, but quite like the yellow 'turmeric' dyed paper.
