This is the last one with this color background. I created new plates and the blue version in the third thumbnail is the result. The image size of this original, hand-pulled, vibrant red collograph of a male Northern Cardinal measures 9.25" x 7". He definitely has an attitude.
Paper Size: 11.25" x 9"

Each print is signed and numbered

The majority of the color on this collagraph is printed with a bit of hand coloring at the end. This guy could easily be matted to fit a standard 11" x 14" frame.

Note: I make every effort to photograph my artwork as accurately as possible. Due to differences in monitor settings the color in the actual artwork may vary slightly from what is seen on any given computer screen.

The collagraph takes its name from collage. It is an impression made from a board or block in which three-dimensional elements are glued. I usually use two plates in my process. The first one is to pull the black and white image with texture and the second plate is a way for me to add color. Many people like the black and whites as they are so I have decided to work on some editions that are just black and white.
