Tradigital Printmaking by Linden Langdon (2)
This print ( as with my previous"tradigital" print) also uses a digital layer to create the background. The print was produced as a collaborative work with a writers group, who came up with short and interesting word groups for the printmakers to respond to. We only did a small print run, and as there were quite a few participants it was decided that only archival copies of the finished book would be made. Only 8 prints were made.
The digital layer is a photo of ice on the roof of my car! The morning sun made some beautiful light contrasts and I adjusted the colour a little in Photoshop. I added the text in Photoshop as well. Then the etching layer and finally the seahorse which is a lino cut.
