Three Crows

Printmaking Artist Minnesota

I captured this image on a cold winter morning walk. Three stark black crows were perched on a branch high up in a very large tree. I was stunned by the contrast of their dark silhouette against the clear blue sky.

This image was inspired by the many birch trees in our area and on our property. They are beautiful with peeling white bark and an abundance of foliage.  

Reflection

Minnesota Artist

Water is everywhere, specially in Minnesota with a lake around nearly every corner. When the sunlight/moonlight hits just right, we see these colors shining off the water’s surface. 

Bloom

Spring brought the most gorgeous tulips this year! The tulips were an amazing apricot to lemon color.

About Diana's Art

I look to my gardens for endless and awesome inspiration. These images are  expressed through an Intaglio Printmaking Technique called Mezzotint. 


My process begins with creating a rough surface across a copper plate. Using drawing tools (burnishers and scrapers), the plate is hand carved to reveal a particular image. 


The plate is inked, wiped and passed through a press transferring the ink onto a piece of German Etching paper. Color inks are applied by hand before each run of the press. 


The Mezzotint technique proves to be rewarding as well as challenging. Manipulating a plate to bring an idea to surface is a completely fulfilling and creative experience as a printmaking artist.
