Christmas 2010

Here are the 3 designs for this year's Christmas cards. "Winter Fence" and "Winter Thicket" are a reworking of sections of the same collagraph plate that is mentioned in some previous posts. Recycling and reuse in action! These images were printed on an etching press using Charbonnel inks.

"Tom Tree" was hand printed from a linocut and pays homage to Tom Thompson's iconic paintings.

"Tom Tree" black ink on brown paper.

"Tom Tree" coloured inks on off-white paper.

2 inked versions of "Winter Fence".

2 inked versions of "Winter Thicket".
