COMPLETED COLLAGRAPHS

In September I made 2 collagraph plates during my residency at Nature in Art, I have finally completed them.
Locked in my shed for 4 hours this morning I have spent the time printing the collagraphs onto the screen printed colour. These 2 images are a bit of an experiment for me.
They are perhaps a little tentative and I should have had the courage of my convictions and
made stronger marks at the screen print stage, but I have learnt a great deal.
With the screen made up it takes minutes to try a different colour, so I decided to use a bonkers orange, but surprisingly it works quite well. I should have used both colours on the same image.
I am looking forward to trying out this process again and with a bit more gusto.

I really like your chosen colours and I think blue and some orange on the same image would work well. The effects in the background from the collagraph are lovely. Nice space you've got there. I hope it's not cold.

Lovely to see the inside of your studio! And I like the description "bonkers orange"... it looks good, too. Sara x

Orange is a favorite color of mine. And I'm delighted it's appearing in your work.

Beautiful prints - you ought to get locked in the shed more often!

I love your nature based art work-prints and some color with black and white adds zing.
