Black-capped Chickadee on Orange #1 (original collagraph of bird)


If you are interested in more background information on this piece please read the information provided with the black and white version in the preceding post. Since I created a new plate for the black and white version I couldn't stop there.  I started with a yellow background and then created another plate to print an orange texture on top of the yellow. I found the orange to be a bit much so I created another plate and printed a yellow texture on top of the orange.

Black-capped Chickadee #2 (original black and white bird collagraph)


A number of years ago I created two color versions of a chickadee. The original background was blue and later I experimented with a green background. Recently one of my clients requested a black and white version. As a result I decided to create a new plate using some old and new textures in the hopes that the black and white version would stand on its own.

Tupie #2 - Welsh Corgie - Collagraph

This is the final dog collagraph in this grouping. My good friend Diane has had Tupie for many years now. She adopted her after Tupie was done with her days competing in shows. Quite some time ago Diane sent me some really great photos of this critter so when I started working on this project I knew this would be one of my challenges. As in the most recent dog portraits I created a lot of plates and printed many layers of color and texture to get to this point.  Who knows, this may change again, but this is where I will leave it for now.
