The Lobster

Lobsters are are such beautiful creatures , with mottled turquoise shell and bright red antennae. I wanted to show off these gorgeous textures and colours using the collagraph process which transfers both into the print. I love to combine intaglio and relief inking and dry point methods with collagraph to make a print with real layers and depth to the colours. Here are some process photos showing the Lobster print coming into existence.
