First lithography stone: printed

As a first attempt at stone lithography I’m fairly pleased with the outcome. The stone turned out to be very problematic but it’s always a great learning experience when things go wrong!

Although not usually present, I chose to leave a black border that developed through the processing stage as I wanted to keep as much reference to the stoney qualities as possible within the image. The stone was old and had many cracks running through it, however I felt that the natural ‘flaws’ of the material add to the character of the imagery produced.
