Night Market in Granada

These two prints are two-plate photo intaglios from my photo of a street in the Albayzín (or Albaicín) neighborhood, which fascinated me because it has existed for many centuries, developing its character under the rule of different dynasties. Night Market

Granada Boulevard, combining collagraph and intaglio printmaking techniques

intaglio
Granada Boulevard

This 20″ x 16″ print is a mixed-media layering of three printings from two plates.  The first matrix/plate was a collagraph on masonite(carving of buildings and covered with lace, acrylic gel, and gauze), first wiped with black ink and then rolled with off-white ink as a block print on top.  The third layer was from another plate, a photo intaglio plate with the details of the building windows, that is wiped with black ink and printed on top.

Monotype of Midnight walk in Barcelona

2014_07 Midnight walk Barcelona 18x24 Monotype 3

Oil-based inks painted on plastic plate, printed onto Rives BFK paper, this monotype print captures the reflections on the walkway, the repetition of the outdoor patio restaurants and building, and the lights filtering in the sky.  I did a series of three prints of this setting. This one is the largest, at 18″x24″ in size.
