Musica: Cellist Burnished Layers by 

Multi-layered print making on Arches 88. Arches 88 is great to use dry for relief printing and after the first couple of layers, this was all relief printing.

My specialities are watercolour painting and printmaking. Further enquiries?

All works are hand painted or hand printed onto fine quality paper. Marion uses Arches 300gsm rough paper, Saunders Waterford 300gsm cold pressed paper for her watercolours and for each unique state print, the paper is either BFK Rives 280gsm cream paper or Hahnemulle rough 280gsm.

    Now this is really fabulous, Marion! I absolutely love this one. Years ago I was intent on doing a series on musicians, but it never got further than one etching……this makes me feel like getting back to that theme again.

  • I began this one with the same intention of completing a series of musicians but by the times i had printed and printed and printed this cellist i wanted to throw the collagraphic plates in the bin. LOL! thanks for a wonderful comment Elaine, means such a lot coming from you!!

    Now this is just a touch of your genius Marion!
    But the gentle blending of these soft hues is subtle, yet strong, easy on the eye and strong where needed, with those lines giving it shape and form, direction and definition which would otherwise be lacking.
    I also love the composition of the piece and the blue layers which lift this piece out of the ordinary.

    Oh, and I simply had to favourite this before writing a single word!!!

    I’m now going off the hunt for your other cellists…must’ve missed them while we were away.


    :D :D : )))))))))))))))))))
