Hand printed lithography is most like drawing and painting, but the colors can be changed at will. An artist can draw with pencil, crayon or liquid tusche directly on lithographic limestone using a process that was invented in 1798. Additionally, artists can easily transfer images digitally and photographically to aluminum plates using modern technologies. Multiple transparent colors yield rich overlays and complex color notes when printed on fine art and handmade papers. All aspects of color proofing and editioning fine art lithographs will be demonstrated. Previous printmaking experience is not required.
