Next Piece

Working on a new print today. Often one piece leads to the next and the last print sparked a few ideas that warranted further investigation. I spent the last few days working on sketches, taking photos and playing out in my mind what I wanted to do. Here are the negatives, ready to be exposed to the plates.

I thought it would be an interesting artistic challenge to break out of the rectangular format, which is usually the norm, and compose within a square. I also like the idea of layering so I plan on stacking one plate on top of another when I print.
The main reason I chose to work with Solarplates is that they're thin enough to stack without problems. Here's the plates ready to proof.
