I like this version best, they all print out fine will post the printouts off to my friend Pete tomorrow for his book and see what he thinks!
PS it needs ink…
looking and seeing where the edges need to be brought forward & pushed back
this will work!

    OH YES! I love how you added the color Mo! It is such a nice light enhancement.

      (((Nancy))) it needs ink to add depth and balance…. have a very fine black pen will do a bit tomorrow and scan it again… it may go over the top…

      • Eliene says:

        A difficult choice. I personally like the 2nd one but understand that it may not be appropriate for Pete’s book. Great work tho.

    Gorgeous! Way to go Mo.

  3. Lovely indeed. Have fun in the morning.

    oh yes Mo! I agree – it needs ink! What depth and life it brings to the work. Not only are you an outrageously skilled draw-er; your knowledge of the computer, scanning, inking and printing bowls me over. Fabulous to have it to this point by Monday. Go well.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Fiona))) being able to scan and print from home has been such a game changer in this 21st C world & seeing it on the screen helps me take that one step removed to see where the edges need to be pushed forward and pulled back… one more cup of coffee and I will get going

    an exquisite image of how a Seedling must FEEL. Just love this, Mo…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Grace))) Pete’s book has opened my eyes to so much more about the way plants grow and how we relate to them. He has always been so sensitive to how plants feel, when he worked in the glass houses at Melbourne’s Botanic Gardens back in the 70’s his hair grew like tendrils!

    It is so wonderful to watch the work progress. Your skill is so impressive. I love how imaging along the way takes some of the risk out of applying new layers. I love too that the work will be showcased in a book!
