Another Print "Sketch"
This 4" X 6" print was created with an ImagOn plate and includes a relief printed texture, watercolor and cotton thread. The image was assembled in Photo Shop using some of my personal photos and scanned lace. I'll call this one "Cradle II". (I like the play on words.)
During my studio spring cleaning, I came across an antique relief woodblock that I had picked up on my travels; probably used to print fabric. I wanted to use an off-set again so I inked up the block and printed it on a sheet of acetate. This allowed me to use the acetate image to apply a second color ink to the intaglio inked main plate.
I like the effect of the relief block over the intaglio plate.
