I've been commissioned to design an apple tree papercut, incorporating a quote by W B Yeats. The request was that the design have a William Morris "feel" about it. So here are my work in progress pics. I hope I'm achieving the William Morris effect. The font is similar to the fonts that Morris himself used.
This time I've decided to hollow out the leaves. Not something that I've attempted before but I think it makes a huge difference to the whole look of the piece. The inner circle surrounding the tree measures 19cm diameter.
