I want so much to take a printmaking course and buy a press. (If I am telling you my wants, I might as well add that I also want a tapestry loom and and the space to place a tapestry loom and a press!) For now, I will have to make do with the supplies I do have, in the space available. I do have watercolors, ink pens and pastels so I decided to try to get the look of a print. Not so sure I achieved that goal, perhaps I was carried away with darkening the background for that effect, although they look lighter and more consistent in the originals. I like the carried away effect of the ink lines. And there is no duplicating of the imprint the plate makes on a print. I love that imprint!
Le Coq was done from fellow blogger, Jennifer’s photo of a rooster. You can see it here. These are done on approx. 11×17 sheets of paper.
