Horse of a Different Color

One of the things I love about printmaking is that I can make lots of variations with the same basic image. It is so exciting to experiment with different media and colors of ink and maker. Adding marks here and removing them there.

I had an intaglio print that I embellished with watercolor, ink, and various papers. I then mounted the on either Rives BFK or Somerset paper that was torn to approximately 11" x 15". The print sizes are all about 5.5" x 10.5" and mounted on a torn sheet of decorative paper that is roughly 11" x 13". All prints are $165.00 each.

Sometime the differences are small, and the prints have the same mood or feel. Other times they are huge. 

Here are some of the results.

These are two would be a lovely addition to any room. They were beautifully framed by Hidden Light the Framing Department and are ready to hang. The frames are predominately silver with a warm wash that goes with gold leaf beautifully.

The painting were created with graphite, ink, watercolor, asian papers, and 23 karat gold leaf on 300 lb Saunders Waterford Watercolour paper.
