Illustration Friday - "Green"

This is a linoleum block print I made, and then applied color digitally. I am happy with how the greens and purples work together. I have always liked printmaking, and occasionally I create prints to give to friends as gifts or box them as greeting card sets. This is one of my favorites.

  4. Nice wood block look.
    The restrictiveness of that medium makes your marks have great unity. You really captured it.
