July in Disguise

Well, we're still waiting for summer to get here.  This weekend, the first long weekend of summer, July floated in on a torrent of water and kept us inside for most of it.  The real irony is that the soggy Canada Day holiday weekend freed me up from working outside in the garden but gave me some extra time to work on the print of the garden patron.  So, thanks to the rain, I managed to get two colours done instead of just one.  

I used a clear plastic mask to print the green:

And I got a bit of a surprise when the rust colour turned brown on top of that green.  Clearly I still have some learning to do before I can really predict what a colour will do on top of another. 

Three passes left to go now.
