Night Passage: 9"x9" acrylic painting over gelli print

I started with a gelli print: I rolled pink acrylic across the whole plate, then a magenta across the bottom, then painted two figures on with orange, pressed the paper onto the plate, and brayered some magenta onto the page as well. Then I added some trees and more details to the figures and decided to make it 'nighttime.'
I really like the idea of this, mother and daughter making their way silently in the night to some destination, with colorful robes keeping them warm.
