|New Mexico Harvest 24 x 36 Oil/Linen|
I had produced a test sketch on semi transparent drafting film in preparation for trying this new method and on Thursday, John, our very helpful technician guided me through the process.
|Not a very good photo of my test sketch!|
|Positioning the drawing onto the plate.|
|Adding the positive developer and washing away the exposed area.|
|The image is now fixed onto the plate.|
|John showing me how it's done!|
You can use any kind of press to transfer the image from the plate onto the paper, but we use an off set litho press, seen below.
|John working the press - thanks to John for all the help!|
|First ever photoplate lithograph by Lynne Windsor!!|
This morning I thought I would get on my bike again for the first time in almost two months. It's not often that you are happily cycling down a country lane and you see a muster of peacocks and peahens! (yes, I just learned the term muster). If it hadn't been for that experience I would have been more than a little miffed by the fact that I also got a flat tyre.
Here are a couple of photos. I wish I had my better camera here with me, but these aren't bad. The colours of the peacock are amazing!
