Pacific Northwest Native Plants.

Pacific Northwest native plant greeting cards and art prints.

Here are the first few cards in my new greeting card series inspired by my home in the Pacific Northwest. They are also available as art prints. I use the same illustration style of pen and ink drawing as seen in my botanical illustrations originally created for the Washington Post’s Digging In gardening column. I like the look of the pen and ink when it is “colorized”. It reminds me of the old hand colored¬†sepia tinted photographs before the days of color photography. Nowadays I can get the same affect using my computer, though I still have to spend a lot of time creating the color shapes to “tint” the pen and ink illustrations. But I think it is worth it for the end result. I hope you think so too?
