Botanical Sketch #33 - Shallots

Today's Botanical Print is Allium Cepa variety aggregatum, otherwise known as shallots. These were fun to draw because the combination of orange and purple are a hard pair to combine without looking garish.  I really liked this one, the colors and shapes.
This one was done in a monoprinted background (Gelliprints), with stamped images on top (the black bars).  I used colored pencil and inks for the illustrations.
