"Mixing Adobe" stone lithograph

"Mixing Adobe" is a stone lithograph I completed at ArtGym Denver recently. I then added two serigraph glazes to the image. There are a total of 16 prints in the edition. Working with the lithography process is very rewarding as there is so much process to deal with but the result is well worth the effort. Look for more prints similar to this one over the summer.

Transferring the drawing

I used Conte powder to transfer the image onto the stone. The conte powder was on the back of a tracing made from the original sketch.
