LITHOGRAPHY: GALLERY: FAVORITE COLLECTIONS
Graphic prints have always been special to me, and I'd like to share a small collection of them with you. All the litho's here are stones of various sizes and in the personal techniques of the individual artist. Let's take a look.
These top two litho's were sketched on 13" X 18" stones. This left print is a lithocrayon and tusche drawing. The crayons imparted a wonderful "atmospheric" textural surface on stone, and tusche provided clear outlines and larger blended areas.
One of my favorite colored lithographs, this one is toned entirely with lithocrayons. It has subtle transparencies with different shadowing depths that give interesting mottled blends to the drawing --with monocromatic color.
In lithography, using "tusche" is close to watercolor painting. In this drawing it's heavy black consistency was thinned with turpentine to control opacity and the stone itself added a wonderful modelling texture to the thinned hue. Like wood and lino cuts, each color is a separate stone printing. Can you find the 10 faces and figures in this drawing?
|The next section concludes with the gallery with a large litho and another area of graphics--etching. Have a look.|
