What a beautiful horse. His face was so wise looking, and kind... I'm sorry he's gone. You've done a wonderful job sharing his likeness with us through your amazing work. Lovely tribute.

@Maryann Haraldsen - first a couple of questions: are you printing on a press, or by hand? Are you using wood or linoleum? Are you using oil or water-based inks?

+Maryann Haraldsen Hi there. Here's a link to a 5-pack of Rives BFK Lightweight printmaking paper. The sheets are 19x26, so depending on the size of the block you're working on, you should be able to tear them down to get at least twice that many sheets. http://amzn.to/1QcbCMN I work small, so I can usually get 24-29 sheets from one of these 5-packs. Good luck! Share your results so we can see!

@Gabriele Bitter - yes! You can print an edition from sealed matboard collagraphs on a press. Make sure to use at least 2 coats of gloss medium varnish & let them dry thoroughly before you start inking, etc. footage of a matboard collagraph printed on a press is here: http://youtu.be/c9zB-kiT8HU looking forward to your results!

+Gabriele Bitter - when you post your printmaking experiments - share them on my facebook page rather than my newsfeed. The page is almost exclusively artists, printmakers and art lovers, and the newsfeed is family, fellow sailors, old school friends, etc. The page has a more appropriate audience for your efforts. :) Just "like" the page, and you can post there: https://www.facebook.com/belinda.delpesco

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 an inspiring resource documenting my journey as an artist, and a grounding exploration into the salve of the written word. 

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 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.
