Foxy New Work

I had it in mind since August to play around with printing in two colors for a bit of a retro feel to my work.  I finally sat myself down to experiment this weekend.  Here is my first go at it and I'm pretty excited.  I carved two plates for this illo, one that I printed in green and other the brown line work.

I added in a few touches of color after the image was printed with my trusty oil pastels.  I have to say, I'm quite smitten with foxes at the moment.  Now to work up a few more samples in this style.

Here is the sketch, in case you like to see the process.
