kc print society is 1 of 9

To produce Zebra with Cherry and Fava Bean  Sherrie Wolf began with a reproduction of the Stubbs painting and placed real objects in front of it. She digitally photographed the composition which she then manipulated on a computer changing some colors. The new image was used to produce a photogravure plate which was printed in black ink. The artist made two aquatint plates from which the seven other colors were printed. Wolf likes aquatint because it provides the range and nuances of tone required for the polychromatic effects she desires. (courtesy of The Print Club of Cleveland,, accessed Nov 17, 2013)
