I will be posting some samples of new work in progress within the next week. I am looking forward to working on several abstract designs, as well as an entirely new portrait, a real departure for me. Hope she recognizes herself!
A true Mardi Gras print -- colorful and crowded! After producing this, it felt wrong to go to just one-color for the next project. But it turned out much better than I expected, which is part of the printmaking process. As in watercolor, you are never totally sure what the finished product will look like. Like opening a good present on your birthday....
This is the same collagraph, only monochromatic.
This version was done using the back of a wooden spoon. This method comes from Asia, and is very time consuming. It takes about 10 minutes to produce this small print, and you can only produce one of them. A quality ghost print of this collagraph is probably unlikely.
