Happy 2018... New Year = New Works

I added another printing technique to my practice this past year --- I started printing using palladium. It's deep and rich and I've always wanted to use it. I've started adding cyanotype and gum bichromate on top the palladium layers as well.

In the image above, the print on the right is a work print of only palladium. The print on the left is palladium with 3 layers of gum bichromate on top of it.

I'm in the practice stage now, also known as the "honeymoon phase" of printing. I'm loving every moment of it because it's all about experimentation and getting to know what these processes will do for my work.

I've got plans for at least one new series... It's nice to start the new year off with excitement and hope.
