New printmaking video (hand printed & colored  #collagraphs  ) and a link to the Getty Museum virtual library.
Here is one collagraph in an edition of seven, made from a mat board substrate, printed by hand with akua ink, and then treated with color using a variety of media; one with watercolor, another with charcoal, a bright and impressionistic version with oil pastel and the print above with colored ...

+Srivandana Szepanski - thanks for your feedback - I'm glad you find these helpful. The sealer on the plate (look at the plate-building video linked in the 'show more' list under the video window: http://bit.ly/1JaJN48) is liquitex gloss medium and varnish. Happy printing!

Many thanks, Belinda.  I tried PVA which worked well for a short run of relief prints for Christmas cards but then started to destroy the paper as, surprise, it stuck!  I have recently sealed some matt board (in the UK mountboard) with Buttonhole Polish - shellac so we'll see how that goes.

Great video, as always. That is some amazmo line work. Also, nice text/title inserts; informative and fancy with your logo elements rolling out. You're a master editor, and a printman, all rolled into one. :) Looking forward to part II

+Diode Press - yes, I know that feeling of expanded roll out so well. Scope-Creep. Especially in printmaking projects. "should take an hour or two" turns into a week. But it's so fun!

Beautifully done - she's got a wonderful face and the stars and night sky are wintery and perfect. Great little painting!

When it was announced in December that Toni Morrison would have a new novel published in April (God Help the Child), the literary world was abuzz. But if the Toni Morrison news was a large wave, then consider the Harper Lee a...

New video #onmyblog  - a #printmaking #experiment with #drypoint   #engraving  on #draftingfilm  - with #fun  results! #art #wip #video  
I've got a quick, fun experiment from the studio today, and I video taped the process & outcome so I could share the details with you all if it was a bust or a hit. Several years ago, I read about an un-named artist making drypoint engravings (incised directly into the plate without the use of ...

"...the best is giving what you've made to someone else and then watching their faces...." That is so true. Great little intro video, and beautiful work. #printmaking

Story
Tagline
Painter & Printmaker; www.belindadelpesco.com
Introduction
Hi there, 
I'm a watercolor painter & printmaker, born and raised in New England, and living & working in California. I've published an art blog since 2005, and the practice has been a lovely exploration into the written word, as well as an inspiring resource documenting my journey as an artist. 

I sell my work on Etsy (bdelpesco.etsy.com), and at Art Festivals and regional shows and exhibits. I love experimenting with various approaches in watercolor & printmaking, so I share the results of my meanderings on my blog with process photos and videos (http://bit.ly/1F1JDFZ). 

As a visual person, I appreciate pictorial instruction - in everything from art-making to gardening & cooking - so it seems natural to share images and videos from my studio. I hope the photos and descriptions of creating art here on my blog (http://www.belindadelpesco.com/) inspire you to follow along & make something. If you have any questions, be in touch.
