Printmaking adventures

My goal with printmaking is to keep it experimental and as receptive to the incidental as my painting. To this end I have been experimenting with collagraph prints. This technique allows me a greater sense of freedom when preparing the plate, which is fun. This translates into a freer looking print. My longer term plan is too also draw into the plate at the printing stage and to combine intaglio with relief printing processes. For now please enjoy my latest explorations.

‘High tide.’ Collagraph print

‘The turn of the tide.’ Collagraph print

‘Midday onwards.’ Tetra collagraph/ dry point print

‘Seasons come & go.’ Collagraph print

‘Time’s ebb & flow.’ Collagraph print

Lithography skill development

After some trial and error I’ve begun to develop more printmaking skills. Lithography is something I’ve been wanting to learn for some time. Watching You Tube videos and making many errors I’ve taught myself lithography using polyester plates. One day I would like to try stone lithography. In the meantime I can see the potential of the technique and looking forward to being more experimental.
