Chapter 1: The Original Series

My first breakthrough in working with liquid emulsions, the two prints below were monstrous milestones for me in image quality and tonal richness. These are the last two prints I made before moving on to chapter two of my experiment and hand-stretched wood-framed canvas. These two are wrapped to 1/2" foamcore board and have a slight convex warping from the canvas shrinking in the drying process and pulling tight on the board. Lightweight with a low profile and strong pressence.
