Forest

Solar Print
2011

Forest was inspired by my love of winter. The print is out of a series of 5 solar based prints.

The process included taking multiple reference photos of reflections in snowboarding goggles, winter clothing, hair and bare trees during December. A reference drawing was thus created from a combination of references and then traced onto acetate with permanent market. A photo sensitive plate was then exposed with the acetate drawing on top to create the printing plate which was inked with custom colors to create each picture. The inked plate and paper were then aligned and ran through a printing press with medium pressure as to ensure high detail in the line work.
