Just when you thought it was safe to look at your blogs again, here I am, I could not resist posting the results of my plate making frenzy from last week at Nature in Art. I am relieved that on the whole these plates have given me exactly what I wanted.

I have a bit of work to do to the crow images, but it is great that this technique allows
for making adjustments. I can change the shape and tone.

But most of all I am looking forward to developing screen printed areas to over print these crow images on to. I will also have to decide what exactly needs to go on the labels?

Any suggestions?

Edgar Allen Poe's home address?

Very sharp, I quite like that, thankyou for stopping by.

These are wonderful. I love the stance of the final bird with the key. There's a sort of arrogance or 'knowledge' about it that really appeals to me. Intrigued to know what you'll screen print with them? Can't wait to find out what you do next..... Lesley xx

Wonderful images! The "reflected " bluish "light" on the last crow is perfect!

How about this as a starting point...?

Oh, these are great! Coincidentally, I've just finished a flying bird with a label in its beak for the Sketchbook Project - I've written on it the theme I've chosen - 'In Flight'!! I think 'Are you curious about me's' suggestions are excellent!
