Collagraph results with oil paint.

I've just had a quick try with oil paints and will now stop until I get the proper etching ink.

The lizard on the left got bent in the pasta machine, hence the crease mark across the bottom. It was the first go and I'm a bit better at it now...it's all a question of guiding it through the machine carefully.






The second attempt this time at an apple, involved more than one colour,
and it was applied with a paintbrush, then rubbed with a cloth.

The card is supposed to be the darkest area, but obviously it isn't in this case, so I need to change card or change tactics!

Still, great fun, and the most use my pasta machine has had in years.

Portrait in parts

For this portrait I'm starting off by using some stencils and stamps to make a background. I especially like the stencil with the jumble...
