this time around

These are from yesterdays workshop. I actually like the plate on it’s own, especially the shiny duct tape, although I’m sure it will discolor over time. I have a bad habit of picking up new mediums and projects and forgetting about the ones that still need to be finished. So although,┬ámy first time with collograph was years ago at a summer session in Ox-Bow, I’m glad I got the chance to do it again. This time around, I really learned how everyday objects such as mailing tape, sandpaper, painter’s tape, etc. could produce a rich and wide range of texture and tones. And since there’s a new print shop that opened down the street- I really have no excuse not to continue working on some new plate.
