Newest work - 2012

This is my "cow parsnip" or Heracleum lanatum semester, so I will be doing 4 different version of one of my favorite plants. This is aptly titled "Heracleum lanatum" and I'm very happy with how it turned out!

I, also did a smaller plate since we had so much time to work on this first project. I've wanted to do cards for a while so I did a smaller version of "Freshly Fallen" to try it out. The aquatint in the background did it's own thing, but it gives it a dark moody setting that works well. My favorite card is one that came out too light and I drew the lines in with a pen... I might try that "technique" again... & these may end up being my Xmas cards ;)
