Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker #1 - Collagraph of Small Male Woodpecker

A new addition to my bird series with attitude.  I haven't seen any of these small woodpeckers here in St. Louis, but it appears that it is possible. Apparently the red throat is the tell-tale sign that this is a male. As with my most recent Cardinal piece I printed four- to five-textured layers of color on the background.

The image size is 7.25" x 9.5"
Paper size is 9.25" x 11.5"

Northern Cardinal #36 - Collagraph of Red Bird

This is a new variation of Mister Cardinal.  I needed to create a new black and white plate and tried out some different textures.  Obviously the background is darker and I have printed a number of layers of texture over the initial blue.  I may need to try printing another round of texture on the background, but this is it for the moment.  Please click on the image to get a larger view.

The image size is 9.25" x 7"
Paper size is 11" x 9"
