Spring Flowers


Trying something new!
I've been experimenting with "Less is More" which is generally NOT where I end up. But these single monochromatic printed spring blooms were calling for simplicity. Of form. Of colour. Of mark making.

This Trillium was the first I took on in this mini-series and after I'd inscribed the squares and dressmakers wheel I couldn't bring myself to add my usual paint layer to bring them out. Something about the subtle under layer of Quinacridone Crimson (oh! so pale! a mere wash and swipe) and the golden hue of the beeswax itself. Also, this substrate was originally one of the Pre-Shrunk submissions so it has extra yummy texture.

This little rose bud was the jumping off point for the subtle pink for all three. Just a kiss of colour.

I've always loved this photo of Rhodendron Canadense which grow wild here along roadsides and anywhere there's a wet spot.
