This is a sort of companion piece to my Renewal print, and I still don’t know what I am going to call it. They are actually dying tulips, but I’m not sure I want to call this ‘death’ (!). Something will come to mind I’m sure, and if not, then I’ll have a shufty through my thesaurus.
I’m printing this in the same way, starting out with a solid dark background before cutting out the areas to end with the lightest colour last. Well, that’s the plan, but I do often go dark, light, dark again, then lighter. There are no rules!
Here are the process photos so far. The next step is to cut out the leaves then do an orangey yellow, then a brighter yellow on the flowers.
