Printmaking

SwingXL

 

Recently I have been exploring printmaking.  The whole field has changed completely since I first experimented with printmaking in college.   There are so many less toxic ways to make images…  This piece, Swing! was first created as a brush and ink painting.  The painting was scanned and printed out onto acetate in order to create a solar plate.  In addition to inking the plate with black, I applied colored inks to to raised areas of the plate.

Swing! is part of a children’s book that I have been developing.
