Apples and leaves

New subject- apples. This one I continued with red and green, and added texture by pressing leaves into the red background ink before printing. With the positive mask, I also laid down a leaf from the apple tree. Then when printing the positive shape, I coated the leaf in green ink and laid it on the printing plate so that the texture of the leaf was transferred. Here again, the alignment was well out. I was starting to get frustrated, feeling like the course materials were really not being very helpful. I also didn’t think the big green shape worked well anyway- needs another mask over it, to create more highlights.
