Tiger & Sloth, continued




The block is pretty much done. I'll see what needs a little tweaking after I make a test print. In the meantime, I made a mirrored b&w scan of the block (what I call a faux print) to see what it might look like.





I haven't shown it to Kitty or Kurt yet. It's for a series of prints they can hand out to their court as favors when they step down from the Throne at Coronation in June. Or rather, when Sven and Kolfinna step down. ;-j

I still need a title for the piece. Something to reflect their taking a much-deserved rest after their second reign. Made in the Shade?

Very nice contrast between the dark and the light. I like the patterns on the tiger. I'm sure they will love it.

This is very striking, Ellen. I am assuming it will be monochromatic (black on paper)?

NIce! But I am partial to sloths. How big is it?

It is lovely and the title Made in the Shade is perfect both for the image and the occasion, which incidentally, I think you have more than risen to!

Thanx. 8-]

The tiger is a Celtic pattern (Kitty actually has it tattooed on her shoulder!). I'm planning black and white, but you never know. I'm easily bored and I may start adding color. ;-j

The block is 4"x6".
