This week’s experiments with printing collagraphs… incorporating printed material (both found and self created on Lokta paper).
The subject matter in these is deliberately more abstracted than my recent collagraphs. The plate was mount board with texture paste brushed on (perhaps a little too much on the last one below ‘Fathoms’). I use cerulean blue ink a lot, but mixed this time with a little raw umber, which gives a lovely depth of colour.
Really enjoyed producing these and I’ll be experimenting further along these lines. I’ll keep posting the results.
Love the work and the experimental nature of your process. Very inspiring.
Many thanks painterprintmakr, and for dropping by my blog 🙂
Hi Mari, these are really interesting and i actually like the last one best – its got a coastal feel for me. I have recently begun using collagraph as a way of exploring ideas and find them both fascinating and inspiring. Looking forward to seeing more!
thanks Amanda. I’ve just been looking at some of the collagraphs on your own blog – I particularly like the St Ives harbour one (in your gallery). Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the useful feedback 🙂
This is handsome, handsome work!
thank you so much John! and for visiting my blog. 🙂
