Coastal Banksias.

I absolutely love banksias. I created this small lino cut of the coastal banksia, printed it with opaque screen printing ink, then added more colour with the inktense pencils.

I found this beautiful fabric at Kate’s Sewing Centre. It immediately made me think of the sea colours and my Banksia print. The colours went together beautifully.¬† I decided to applique the banksia print onto the sea fabric, rather than setting it in, as I did not want to break up the commercial print. It all looks (to me) like the sea rolling into the¬†shore.
