Ready to print my first large collagraph at Cato Press, if my paper ever arrives from Lawrence Art Supplies (Brighton). Not their fault, just the delivery firm. The only place to buy a good range of print paper in Bristol is Bower Ashton art college (University of the West of England) but they are shut for the summer. I need a wider than average sheet for this relief print.
Since making this proof I have altered the image quite a bit but hopefully this will be the final effort. Time to start work on the next one. I feel at home with collagraph and I can work on the image without special equipment – just glue, knives, card and other thin material – in my studio at home.
Having spent a lot of time recently on my plywood toys and models – now on sale at Basically Wooden – I hope to give more attention to print making.
