Yellow Ochre Blues

Yesterday we were working on our print job for Tom Wood. The only thing that is a little tricky is trying to match the color to the original print. The original print has a lovely warm and creamy golden yellow and so we are mixing yellow ochre with white, raw sienna, hansa yellow, easy wipe, and transparent base. (Don't worry Tom, we are really close!) To help us along, we were listening to a cd of old and rare American folk and blues music, and we got inspired to write a little blues song of our own.... This is the first (and probably the last) song from Twin Vixen Press. We think it is pretty hilarious and hopefully you will too....

Today it is snowing like the devil, we have quite a few inches on the ground. Briony heads to Johnson on Saturday to begin her artist in residence at Vermont Studio Center. We are preparing ourselves for the month long separation.

Helen's Etchings

So this is the prelude to a website and a way for all those curious to see my most recent prints. The color prints (with the exception of Orcas Tree's) are multiple plate etchings (each color has its own plate) and most are done using aquatint. Thanks for looking.
