New mezzotint prints

I have finished working on a few plates, most of which are going to be exhibited at the Blackheath gallery in London starting from 11th of June as part of their Summer Show.

Decided to experiment with adding colour to mezzotint. Got varied feedback. I am posting images with colour and without colour, and would love to hear your opinion on them!

The above images are rather large. Well, for a mezzotint AND for my mezzotints. Nudes are all 15x24cm, and the apple prints are 23×36.5 the left and right images and 23x23cm the central one.

I am gradually increasing the sizes of my plates. Gradually, because mezzotint IS such medium – incremental. Currently, I am working on two portraits which are the biggest ever – 75x46cm.

In comparison with hours, days, weeks and months it took me to finish the above prints, working on a couple of small plates hardly left an imprint on my memory. Still, I like them for their simplicity. Simpleton-icity even :-)
