collagraph from the new series i am working on, 'arizona suite'. they explore the texture character of rock

ocotillo and their shadows reflected on the wall behind them. this a photopolymer intaglio from a photograph. i use the single exposure technique when making my etching plates, even though i now have a large aquatint screen, courtesy of big john lingenfelter at bare naked, new river, arizona. i have used the screen for prints where minute detail and complex shades of grey are required.

photopolymer intaglio of a saguaro. this is the first time i experimented with colour.
