Sheep Head (Collagraph) - Large Original Artwork
Sheep Head (Collagraph) is from my range of 'Large Original Artworks' that are available framed for collection or can be posted unframed in a tube to prevent damage.
The Mourne Mountains are full of these black faced sheep. This image is is created by a printmaking technique know as collagraph. The surface of a flat printing plate is distorted to hold the image by cutting into the surface and adding textures. The plate is then inked and put through an etching press. It's a technique that I often use as the marks are so distinctive.
- These large originals are mixed media artworks that would really stand out hanging on your wall
- The image is created by hand on my etching press and then painted with watercolours and pastels. I create a number of versions from each plate but each one is unique.
