“beach parasols” relief print


beach.parasols.blogI have been busy printing and finally got to frame a few of my few of my new prints as well. This is a relief print “Beach Parasols” on “natural” colored stonehenge paper, size 11.25×18″ ( just the printed area).

I got the idea for the image sitting in a local beach bar looking over the beach. There weren’t actually as many parasols up but a few and I didn’t really see any fish but know that there is plenty out there. The image is pretty ‘clean’ and simple to keep the focus on the pattern. I tried different colors for the paper but came back to a natural tone to enhance the contrast of black ink on a light colored background.
