Egrets in the Wetlands

Egrets in the Wetlands - student project

Good suggestion from Jon to try & add half tones to the rocks, etc. to pull out some of the white.  I also used some gradients but not sure if Emalco can use gradients in the printing process.  Below is the updated version with these changes.

It all started out as a camping theme but morphed into the Egrets which I often see here in Northern California staking out their territory in the wetlands and near the Sacramento river levees . 

Note the version at the top is for the contest - As Jon reminded me - only 3 colors for the design.  So Black, white & blue.  Mug yellow filled out the rest.

Outside cup is light yellow PMS 1205C - this serves as the sky and backdrop to the wetlands.

Inside of cup is white

Lip & handle are dark grey PMS#430c

Still working on the inside - it will be a little fish having the last laugh!  And since I'm left handed it will face left when holding the mug with your left hand :)

This is the original version.
