Here is the first proof of "First Ladies." Most definitely the background needs to be cleaned up a little, but I think it is basically done!
I went on a spending spree (thanks, credit card!) and bought a crapload of Asian papers to experiment with. From Dick Blick I got Lami Li Lokta from Nepal (in Lagoon blue, Spring green, Natural and Sunshine) and from Graphic Chemical I bought Kitakata (light green), Mulberry (white) and Hosho (white). I'm thinking this print will look great on one of the colorful Lami Li papers!
