Red & Brown Forest

I am still going through my boxes full of small blocks looking for interesting combinations.
This print is composed of two linoblocks. One is a swirly pattern that I use alternately as sky or water and this one was printed once and overprinted using a different portion of the block. The second lino is the tree block, here printed in two colours and offset slightly so that the trees appear to be different. The curved green pattern behind the trees is an old piece of wood that was wire brushed to bring out the grain. Again it was printed twice using two different colours and printing different sections of the block to give variety.
Altogether, a lot of movement going on in the background in contrast to the trees in front.
