Wabe Sabe Pine: Step 3 & 4

These are the latest two phases of Pine. I wanted to capture the two-tone aspect of the needles, as they were when we saw them, so I printed only a portion of them in an orange rust colour and then printed the green over top. I rolled out more ink on the top section of the needles and rolled the brayer very lightly over the bottom so the underlayer would come through. It worked well enough but it was pretty much impossible to maintain total consistency in which parts of the orange showed through.

These are the two blocks as inked.

Now there's just the trunk and branches left to do.
