Each artists was allotted a plant and written information about the plant and we were allowed to create a print in any medium and style.
I chose a double plate print with the background developed from a vinyl lino plate and the main image from normal lino but smaller.
This isn't how I loaded these as the one below is the vinyl lino already cut and the print here.
Lino plate ready fro printing.
The finished image and I liked the two different colours.
The large veins for the background are indicative of their life giving energy. My plant is the Mt .Blackwood Holly which has a lovely trumpet shaped flower of the most beautiful cerise colour. The leaves and the sticky type stems interested me and the points on the leaves are so defined.
