Revisting Echinacea Motifs

I have a thing for Echinacea, very graceful in its dance in the garden. My favorite flower as you know! I love to sketch it, paint it in ink, in gouache and I have also used the motif in a silkscreen but I have never taken the time to make a block print. I went into my sketch book and pulled sketches. I did manage to add a few new ones as a warm up exercise to before drawing straight on the block.

 I drew on the block itself for the fun of it and it it helps to keep things looser than a transfer, for me. 
Cant wait to start carving. 

Thank you for stopping by.
