Girl & Horse Illustration

I found that my handmade paper prints very well.  I made an illustration that didn’t pan out the way I wanted in my printmaking class last year, so I revisited it to brighten it up with color and run it through my Epson.  I’m really pleased with how they turned out.  For my graduate review, I showcased 3 different prints with different ways of displaying them to hear their thoughts.  They said magnets worked the best, and I agree.

I blended grass with this paper to give it a nice, organic appearance

This one is displayed in a shadow box.  The picture doesn’t do justice to the actual print.  The purple tone of the paper looked really nice showing through those printed colors.

I printed this one in grey-scale on green paper that had a nice moonscape effect in areas (a happy accident!)
