Here are some things I'm working on this week. I sketched out some star anise onto a monoprinted page. The warm colors of the anise pod complement the background well.
Here is a glimpse of some other hanging pods. I love these brilliant color ones and the textures of these ones.
And lastly, some artichokes. I love the purple and greens. With all of these I worked on shadow, particularly adding a bit of the color of the object into the shadow. This way the artichoke shadow had a bit of purple in it; the anise shadow had a bit of orange in it; the brightly colored pods had a bit of their brilliant colors in it.
