“There’s a lot of erasing and redrawing.
“It’s not only necessary, it’s also kind of the point — the greatest opportunity to learn is when you don’t do it right.” — Chris LaPorte
Through the week, I stumbled across the Twitter feed of Colossal and, in turn, the inspirational work of Chris LaPorte.
LaPorte makes huge pencil drawings…really huge!
I love that there are people in the world making such wonderful creations. I’d love to hear what you think too — leave a comment and let me know…
Have you wondered why I put so much love into pursuing such an old print process as Platinum printing?
It’s true that the process doesn’t fit snugly into our modern fast-paced life — the prints are expensive to make and each one requires a fair amount of time to create.
I’ve described the beauty and rarity of Platinum printing on this process page.
Sometimes, however, it’s also good to hear about it from another angle and perhaps none better than this short video from George Eastman House…
I now have four beautiful prints available to buy in my Platinum/Palladium Collection.
My last post, Rum at Dusk, describes one of the images in more detail.
