    The shadows are ace.

  • The shadows where the parts that made it hardest to print, but it was worth the pain.

    This is turning into an excellent dead botanics series Chris. The pink tone adds such an lovely old worldly softness and your comp is ace!

  • Thanks Silvia. I borrowed some of my mum’s props, she’s a botanic artist.
