Artist's description:

This striking image is a Collagraph print made from board and various textured papers to suggest a splendid Kingfisher bird perched on a branch and backed by reeds. After making the design I coated it in button polish to preserve it.
I inked it up using Charbonnel Aqua Wash inks by pushing the ink into all the special marks I had made. Then it was wiped and printed using damp 250g Hahnemuhle on my etching press. The high pressure used results in a pleasing slightly embossed effect on and around the shapes and the plate mark is clearly visible. The inking process is repeated each time which is why the prints can vary a little each time.

Materials used:

Charbonnel Aqua Wash inks on 250g Hahnemuhle paper

Kingfisher in the Reeds (2017)
