"Breeze" I, II, and III

These are collographs with pencil, watercolor, and gesso. The image is 8" x 10". In a collograph, a collage is created using textural elements and by cutting away layers of the base, in this case illustration board. Glue, gesso, gel medium, threads, and relief techniques were all used to create the basic plate. After sealing the plate with gel medium, I then inked the plate in various ways for each printing, using dampened Canson acid free 98 lb. paper for the print.

  1. I'm glad you explained what a collagraph is!

    The last one is my favorite.
