Monoprint Monday

Today's mono print uses oranges, yellows and blues in the background that look green in places. I used the Gelli-plate and had so much fun with the colors and patterns. I wasn't sure what I was going to sketch on it, as the background was unusual and bold.
I sketched anise pods (the licorice tasting spice) against the brilliant background. This was one of my favorite pieces to sketch on, the unexpected colors against the earth tones of the spice make for lots of interest and unexpected texture.
It's available for purchase, unframed and unmounted in my Etsy shop.
