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
