The Tree

I made this three color linoleum print a little while ago and finally bringing it to the light of day. When I was first planning the print, I had not considered how overprinting colors would turn out. As it turns out, printing green over black does not work. Not wanting to abandon the print, I hand painted more leaves on the tree and gave it a fuller appearance. The branches are still visible through the leaves but are not so prominent as they were previously. Unfortunately, I do not have photos before the hand finishing.

The run was only five total, all of which will receive similar hand finishing.
