Botanical Garden series

A while ago I worked in the Botanical Gardens of Utrecht. I brought lithostones with to draw on location, with the intention to print them later.

In total I drew 10-15 stones to print. 

From stone to print is a lenghty process. The drawing itself takes 2/3 hours. Then I have to process the stone to make it ready for print. Each stone takes 3 days to do just that. After that I can print, which will take half a day per usual.

Since that takes time I just wanted to show an impression of the works already made and some process pics.

This a small selection. Want to see them all in real life? This april there will be an expo wih all of them present. (19, 20,21 april in the Melkfabriek Den Bosch)
