Solar printmaking

My 5" x 7" keyhole print has been made using photopolymer printmaking, or solarplate. I used sanguine and black ink to print, then used muted watercolours to tint it. I will probably make 20 in total, one down...

The print is called "XXV. A Slight Glimpse Of San Francisco" and relates to Phileas Fogg retiring to his railway car in chapter 25 of Around The World In Eighty Days on his arrival to the West Coast of the USA. I adapted this to show Lady Penelope retiring for the evening after dinner.

Here is a clip showing a solarprint workshop with Dan Weldon.
