CONTINUE TO COLLAGRAPH

I do not know what it is , but some days you can be working away and nothing goes right.

After days of this being the case, I have finally produced work I am pleased with. These three prints are examples of viscosity inked collagraph plates.
The moral is don't give up. Also go back to things and give them another go!

Are these last two, two plates? Whatever they are I love them. Thanks for the comment about the collagraph plates and the gold chine colle - you had to say that AFTER I'd cut them up didn't you! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Hope the paper is written, done and dusted! Lesley xx

Oh yes, that is SO true... some of my best work has been with recalcitrant plates that have nearly made me tear my hair out! You struggle and struggle with them, sometimes have to put them away for a while out of sheer frustration, and then occasionally it comes together in the end. Which is all part of the magic and secret of making art for me really: whatever people say about "... oh I could do that!", I don't think there's much realisation of the struggle that is sometimes involved. Anyway, I love the colour on your plates! I do find viscosity printing very satisfying.

Lovely! Well worth the effort, I'd say. Congratulations!

I love the top one but the colour in the other two is wonderful. Nice work.
