Field Flowers: Completion

At last, this print is done. The finished size is 7" x 9". These are the last two stages:



The indigo ink is still tacky, after two weeks of drying, so I can't do any matting yet. One thing I regret is not putting more depth (another colour) into the foreground gold section; that part came out a bit too flat though overall I'm happy with the way this turned out. I like the simplicity and vibrancy of the colours. It reminds me of the Mexican clay masks my parents had in their house in Arizona, also very vibrant and simple in imagery.
