A combination of techniques and materials has been used to create this triptch. First three blocks printed using a blended pass of blue ink. Once these had dried I collaged the pebble shapes using a mixture of inked paper and shapes from previous collagraph prints. Also areas of tracing and tissue paper are collaged in I like the mix of opacity and transparency.

I have tried to show in the detail photograph some of the lovely texture from the ink in the block print. The variation in tone and lovely granulatory qualities bring to mind looking at sand rich in mica through water.
This series seems to be heading in a more graphic and hard edged direction in print compared with the path the paintings are taking. I continue to explore but am intrigued if the two will ever meet and merge at some point in the future.
