‘Mezzotype’ – New mezzotint completed!

17 Aug

It’s done!! I finished proofing the mezzotint I’ve been working on last week and also made a collagraph plate to print the block of text in the foreground.  I’m really excited about this new print, not just because it’s finished, but because of how well the two plates have worked together. I managed to make the collagraph thin enough so that it could sit on the surface of the mezzotint and be printed at the same time! This has saved time because I originally planned to stencil out the area and then print a lino cut in the space but this way makes it more integrated as an image and because it has been embossed it works better as an intaglio-relief combination!

'Mezzotype' £220 (unframed)

I’ll be taking this down to the framers today in preparation for the 20th Norwich Print Fair which takes place at St Margaret’s Church, St Benedict’s St, Norwich from Mon 7th – Sat 19th September!   http://www.norwichprintfair.co.uk/
