Update and change – 2nd Feb
Lisa has asked me to have ONE DRAW ONLY with a first second and third prize. I am changing accordingly. First person drawn will have first pick etc.
BIRD SOLAR PLATE ETCHING – Fine art print.
This is a solar plate etching print of one of my drawings. It is a gang gang cockatoo, drawn at the Australian Museum last winter. It is viscosity printed onto BFK Rives paper. See the glossary above for more about this process. The size of the print is about 8″ x 6″ on paper 11″ x 7.5″.
QUEEN Ann of Cleves – Collograph – fine art print
This is a collograph, viscosity printed onto BFK Rives paper, mostly in Prussian Blue and Sanguine. The subject is Ann of Cleves who was one of the wives of Henry VIII. (It’s part of a series.) The size of the printed area is about 8″ by 10″ and the paper is 11″ by 15″. I made both the collograph plate and the solar plate myself and also printed them.
The prints will be signed before I send them.
BOOK – Exposed spine binding.
This is a handbound book, made from heavy watercolour paper (300gsm) that I decorated myself. It has an exposed spine binding. Size is about 8″ by 7″. It has 14 pages (that’s 28 surfaces) and one side of the paper is decorated like the cover and the other side is decorated like the other image.
All surfaces are coloured so it would be suitable for gluing stuff on and writing, but only suitable for drawing if you used a bold pen.
