Bolinas & Stinson Topographical Print by James L. Tucker

50.00

Bolinas and Stinson Beach are almost on the opposite ends of the Northern California beach town spectrum even though they are only separated by a narrow inlet. Mount Tam looms large above them as if telling her children to play nice. A sunset in each town always ends with one staring into the endless Pacific where towns boundaries don't mean much. 

Being in these places and observing the sky, flora, and topography I started with gestural ink washes and dozens of photographs of the sky at different points of the day. Back in my studio I mixed inks to replicate the sky gradients and ran split fountain linoleum block letterpress prints. The topography of each location was then embedded into the paper with no ink, leaving a blind impression. Lastly, the ink washes were made into halftone plates and printed in another pass riding across the sky plate
