Summer Reflections II
Materials: Oil-based etching ink, Unryu Thai blue chiffon paper, oil pastel.The reflection was created by printing on a piece of paper that was folded lengthwise, producing two layers of paper that went through the press on top of the inked etching plate. The blue ink "printed through" both layers of the paper. Once unfolded there was a darker blue image at the top and a lighter blue image at the bottom of the paper, simulating a reflection. A number of colors of oil pastel were applied to the etching, creating an optical effect of blended colors.
