Mokulito, wood lithography, Harriet, Clara, and Joan
As with the other works, Joan has been produced using Luna wood, sanded, but also given a wash of goats milk with a little cloudy ammonia added, allowed to dry, drawing with the usual litho materials and washes and some cutting into the wood to add texture. This time I added a little nitric to my gum, 3 drops and worked on the plate as I would for stone lithography, the plate was allowed to dry for three days and printed in the same manner as the first two works. The results as far as I can see is less of the wood grain printing up, due to the binding of the milk on the plate and a much larger edition. I personally love the grain so might try a different approach for the next work.
