I'm also working on some of the prints I created in Santa Fe.....experiments with adding another medium in my own studio. What most of the pieces needed was some more color and drawing on them, so I've been using Caran d'Ache and turning them into mixed media or hybrid prints.
Here are some I have been working on and finished this morning, each uses two plates with colored ink printed in an etching press.
Here are two versions each of "Fig. 17, The Dark Twin" and two each of "Fig. 12, The Conflict".
|Printed with two plates: a solar plate etching + monotype, printed in Santa Fe|
|Printed with two different solarplate etchings, the phthalo green plate was only half-inked, printed in Tucson|
|Two plates: black solarplate etching and a monotype; colored pencil was added later to enhance the Seraphim image|
|Two plates: a solarplate etching plus a solid orange flat roll with added paper stencils|
I'll be printing all day tomorrow, so look for some more new stuff in the next few days!
