Printing method: hand drawn plated are hand pulled, one colour a time, in perfect registration on one an antique Dufa printing press on Coventry archival paper. This is a labor intensive technique as each lithograph is created with hand-mixed colours that is applied one at a time by a highly trained and synchronized team who must hand feed each museum quality sheet of paper through the press numerous times (one colour at a time, one pull at a time for each colour) to set the colours and impressions. The chromist (trained colour specialist) adjusts each colour by look and feel to perfectly match the original artwork. The result is an image with maximum pigment saturation due to the rich layers of colour which saturate the artwork with brilliance.
