Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

After refining sketches and creating a number of plates, I've been proofing and trying out various configurations and color options. I reworked a few of the plates because they just wouldn't print as I had intended and I wasn't happy with the images. I'm happy with some of the new individual plates but not yet satisfied with how they relate to each other. When it seems as though I'm just "running on ice" I find it best to clean up and pack it in for the day. I'll start fresh in the morning and hopefully things will start to come together.


  1. Hi, yes sometimes it is good to start fresh the next day. I think I like how the middle print looks as I stare into the computer.

  2. Melody,

    I couldn't find an e-mail address for you, but I wanted to send you a hearty thank you for your reply on my blog! I'm just starting out printmaking with great enthusiasm, but have so little guidance! It was great to hear from a more experiences printmaker, and I appreciate your insight.

    I'd love to pick your brain about a couple of the hints you left me. If you have time and are willing to share of your knowledge, I would love to touch base with you. I can be reached at rmwalter.proulx [at] gmail.com.

    Regardless, thanks a million!
