The image is hand printed from a hand made collagraph plate.
I create my plates by engraving into thin wooden board. I then glue recycled materials to the board and form textures with plaster and carborundum. Once the plate is thoroughly dry, a coat of shellac or varnish is used to seal it. The following day, my collagraph plate is ready to print from.
Only a few images can be produced from each plate, before it degrades.
The image was carefully inked and printed in two stages onto Somerset Velvet printmaking paper using my etching press.
A few days later . . once the inks had dried . . I created a silkscreen and printed the birds in dark blue water based inks.
The artwork is available mounted and backed or professionally framed in black or oak.
The mounting materials are the highest quality available
