Recent: Planet Horizons

Dabbling in more non-objective images the last week. HAd some sales and lots of interest in early images that were NOT faces or animals. Actually was a pleasant surprise. These three are larger scale and pretty free. Trying some brushing of ink on, mixing Akua Kolor with DS inks (with only marginal success).

I like the horizons
The first two are twin or sibling images






This one is just a cousin

Great intense colours in these Mark
I don't know if because of how they appear on my Dell flatscreen monitor but if they are as rich and deep in reality as I'm looking at on the screen that is amazing.
Are these relief prints from lino? like the layering I am seeing

Re: Recent: Planet Horizons

Thanks Brian:
forgot to mention that these are Gelatin Plate monoprints.
So I'm guessing, on average, there are 3-4 passes on each print using mostly Daniel SMith water based relief inks.
color accuracy given digital cameras and monitors is always an issue but they are pretty close. I've been more dilligent about mixing colors vs. just using them right out the tube. So I usually mix some green or yellow into the red (to deepen or lighten) etc
