A Good Afternoon Printing.

 Having carved this Grasstree a while ago, I have only just found the time to make prints of it. Using the original background of my photograph, tweaked just a little, then printed over with the lino, it has come out quite well. I took the photograph just outside the city of Canberra after massive bush fires had swept through and all the hills were dotted with blackened vegetation.
I want to carve some clumps of grass to go in the foreground, so that the Grasstree isn't quite so isolated and stark.  I wonder if they should be printed in black or dark brown...maybe black as the focus is after all on an area following devastating bush fires.
