It's a two layer, lino print. With the color layer, I was going for a water color effect by spraying mineral spirits on the ink.

Anyways, enjoy.

Thanks. Yeah, I sprayed the inked plate with mineral spirits so it kind of gives a water color effect.

Ah thats really nice....I love the colors, and your cut is very neat- i cant do that too well. I'm doing some 2 layer prints right now.

Well, I took 5 or 6 printmaking classes when I was in school, so I had some practice haha. I miss it.:(

Good luck on the two layers. Don't be scared to just jump in there! I found it really fun to mix mineral spirits with my ink in a lot of pieces. It really brings some life to it when you start using color.:)

really nice, i've been getting into printing a little lately, mono and silkscreen mostly, but wood and lino interest me, this is beautiful. puts me in mind of aboriginal artwork, more the composition and the different thickness black lines snaking along the page than the colour scheme. more please! :)

Well, I definitely have more but they don't fit in my scanner see. I need to get off my lazy bum and take pictures of all my prints. I'll try to do that this week!;P

I know what you mean. I'm always more impressed by things I havn't a clue how to do. It's funny, I just recieved a degree in graphic design yet i'm more interested in trying to make something of myself in digital painting.

Ah that\'s very pretty. It kind reminds me of the linoleum prints I tried awhile ago (unsuccessfully) where I carved out the linoleum with a chisel (cut my hand) and made a design like a stamp that I printed onto sheets of paper. The tree looks very nice.

it's a two print process. I printed the background on a flat piece...just ink on the colors and then used mineral spirits (pint thinner essentially) to make the water color effect. :O_o:

Love the background color, the feel is definitely watercolor. Also, it seems like you're looking up into the tree. It's a very cool effect.

This is really great.
It really has some strong perspective.

It's hard to imagine this being done on
something flat.

I really like the different shades of green; you
really get a feel of light coming through the leaves.

Good job!

:iconemberleo:
emberleo Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008
Actually, even though it is flat I it is done with two separate blocks for separation of the coloring and the tree.

Thanks for the critque. I love when people go in-depth more with their thoughts rather than just "I love it". Not that I don't like that too. xD

No problem.

I agree with the soft critiques people give.
I try to be a bit soft as to not upset anybody, but I stay honest.

I do wish more people would tell me how to improve upon my work,
but getting a little praise does help build my confidence.

Well, I'm very accustomed to critique considering I went to school for this. They don't let you play all nice in class if you know what I mean. So, I like to critque as well. Interaction with other artists helps you grow so much faster if you can take it in. Honesty is my policy too, but I agree there is no need to be rude no matter the situation. :)
