New Growth, resurrected

This poor drawing has been through so many evolutions; I've painted it three times, and this particular drawing has been modified on many occasions. This print is only the most recent version. But, thanks the excellent eyes of Kendall drawing prof Stephen Halko, who very gently pointed out that in a previous version, she had no neck, and to experimentation in Photoshop with levels and curves, which made me adjust the mid tones in the drawing, I think this is better. At least, now she has a neck, and is a proper print.
    Another revelation for me was the discovery of this paper, hiding in my drawer for two years. I think it is a kind of kitikata. The flecks in the paper are very beautiful.
