'Out of the Blue' series - Collagraph (4)
This is a handmade collagraph print with screen printed birds. It is one of a kind and cannot be repeated exactly.
I constructed a collagraph plate from thin wooden board and added texture with plaster, carborundum and varnish.
This 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 black water based inks.
The design is printed in coastal blues, inspired by the crystal clear, deep blue of the sea around the West Coast of Scotland.
Designed and made by myself, Denise Huddleston, on the Isle of Skye.
A contemporary artwork in a Varied Edition of only 5 .
The artwork is available mounted . . or . . mounted and framed in a white, coastal 30mm frame size 30cm x 25cm. The actual artwork area measures 15cm x 10cm
Mounted in a pale ivory, white core, acid-free mount with backing board.
The framed version is professionally framed and has a brushed, white, coastal frame to complement the design.
