Well, I said I was going to draw the Cow Parsley and instead I’ve ended up printing it today.
Printing the plant by Jacquie Campbell
The plants are so fresh and succulent that they have caused no end of problems in the printing process. The darker colours are where they have oozed under the pressure of the etching press but I guess thats all part of capturing the essence of the plant. They certainly smelt good.
There are plenty of ways of printing plants at home without a press, try searching ‘plant printing‘ or ‘nature printing’ online. If you’d like to join in by creatively recording whats growing on your patch of earth this week follow this Plant Share link for details.
