My Digital Print-Paint Process

 This is a reverse image process using a ink jet color printer, archive inks, transfer sheet and quality watercolor paper to print on. The effects that the transfer process achieve are textured or sometimes ghosted with a photographic nuance that I love.

 My process starts by comping my photo images or previous painted portions together in Photoshop. I apply filters or color alternates. I then decide the how to transfer the image in smaller sections using layers to a inkjet printer. I transfer each section onto a heavy watercolor stock keeping these multiple images in line with each other on each pass. The process works best in stages. It also can go very wrong on a 7th or 8th pass which will be scraped. I only produce one good image from my transfer process. When I am happy with the result, I will embellish it with watercolor, ink, charcoal or even collage. I treat the finished sheet with a UV protection spray. I have prints hanging that are over 20 years old that are still vibrant.

"Black Birds"

16" x 20"

2022

Photoshop, 5 Image transfers (Canon Pro) to Sommerset Rag paper, Watercolor, Charcoal

This piece started as a Photoshop composite of snippets from a foliage photograph. The birds seemed to appear out of nowhere and they reminded me of "Hitchcocks" masterpiece, "The Birds". When I really explored, I found so many more birds. One of my darkest pieces yet but that could be a sign of the times.

Original $ 250.00 (unframed)

I will scan a high resolution for my print service if wanted.

Omega

2023 August

16"x 18"

Digital Transfer Composite /Archival Inks / Watercolor

This is a photo of the piece so details are dirty.  It is in cue to be scanned.

Composited in Photoshop of different material textures I scan in and of course a hat! It evolved to the big "O" at top which I find so pleasing to look at. Omega is attached to the Greek alphabet and to a complicated scientific formula. A simple piece that gives me the sense of floating.

Original $ 300.00 (unframed)

Digital Transfer Composite /Archival Inks / Metallic Paint / Ink & Charcoal

This is a photo of the piece so it is hard to see the nuances of the metallic paint but it is not overpowering. It is in cue to be scanned.

Many things die but you have to keep rolling, reinventing to keep those feet moving one in front of another and see what is around the corner. Transform yourself every day into the person you wanted to be in your prime and remember the good fading memories.
