Ginkgo collagraph


“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control” ~ Julia Cameron

This plate (in progress) is a collagraph – cardboard cutouts glued to mount board with three coats of shellac. The intaglio ink is applied with a stiff brush and then wiped away and reapplied in a painterly fashion. I plan to use a graduated roll – green to yellow – to add more interest to the repetitive shapes. I might try eucalyptus leaves as well.
