Echinacea Flower, work in progress

I’m doing another in my series of ‘botanical’ prints, this one is an Echinacea flower. They really do have such a lovely shape and are like huge, coloured in daisies.

I’ve finished the flower head so can now cut that out and finish the petals. I’m stupidly confident that I will be able to cover the over-inked bits at the bottom of the flower head. It is amazing what you can cover up though, even a smidge of white ink should help…famous last words.

Here’s the progress so far:

And this is the state of the flower block (looks like the dog has chewed it, as usual)…which I shall now cut out the dotty flower head to do two or three layers on the petals.
