Artichokes - work in progress

 I thought I'd share the progress of my artichokes lino print...
First plate cut
Plate for second colour being cut
First and second colour plates inked up for a test print
test print - not sure about the colours

I've run off a test print from these first two plates just to check the overall balance and registration. The only requirement was that one was a darker shade than the other and the colours I've used here this test  were just what I happened to have on the ink slab at the time. These greens are a little more muted than I had planned for this piece (see the original sketch in previous post) but now this slightly seventies palette feels just right. I'll have to lighten it up a bit though because there is a nice splash of purple to come too,  what do you think?

  2. this is a super print :) yeah a hint of purple will work very well i think x

  3. I'd like a little more contrast between the 2 greens, and a hint of purple will be fab!

  4. i really really must get the purple plate cut tonight! thanks for dropping by and letting me know what you think:)
