This is why I love printmaking!

6 Nov

I’m not entirely sure why I hadn’t tried printing my plates in colour before now but as I am soon to be teaching colour blending I thought I had better refresh my memory a little.  As it happens I am really pleased with how “With the Spring Comes Wendy” has come out.

The image below is still a colour proof but I will do some limited edition versions using similar colours!

This is the plate ready to print

This is a proof of "With the Spring Comes Wendy" in colour, I am really pleased with the outcome but will try to keep more darker shades around the Wendy house as I think I over wiped the plate around that area. In comparison with the black and white version, this gives a completely different atmosphere and shows a bigger contrast in the dark and light areas of mezzotint. tbc.
