Little Machias

Pronto-plate Lithograph

Pulled this quick proof as a demo for Pronto-plate lithography. I really like the process as it is chemical free, simple and you don't need a 50 pound stone. I think if I refine the use of the crayon as I was using it in a blunt and direct fashion it might start to get interesting. The plate gave me fits at first as it scummed across the entire surface but I cleaned it and re drew some of the details that got lost.

The image is from an old drawing of Little Machias Bay in Northern Maine. Still one of my favorite places to sketch and be by the ocean.
