blues and greens

yep couldn't help myself had to print a little bit of turquoise today. Whats a day printing without some beautiful colours? This one is a sugar lift and aquatint etching.

But still going on some greens which I am working on a snow gum series. These are multiple plate prints so I'll do some more layers next week.  The leaf shapes are embossed on the paper

I had a great day at the print studio yesterday, here are some of my test prints using some new techniques. Solar plate print with multiples plates and lots of green ink! I think this is my favourite time in the week, experimenting with the printing press, mucking around with the colours.

I have been doing some printmaking lately - theae are some of my recent etchings inspired by trees and reefs.  Some greens and blues somehow make the etchings glow.
I love printmaking, the smell of the inks, rolling the prints through the press, and the surprise at the end.

new stuff

heres a new mobile, soft plywood shapes with a dash of orange. I have had the plywood sanded and ready to go for a while but just got inspired today to make one.
I might make a pinkish one next to match my new hair:
