An alternative photographic process created in 1842 and used by botanists to record life. Now known as ‘blueprints’ for architectural drawings.
A chemical is painted by the artist hand onto thick 300gsm Saunders Waterford paper. Each application is unique leaving it’s own variations in brush stroke. The sun then works it’s magic. The paper is washed with pure water leaving a completely unique record of the image.The controlled but random marks of its creation are dependent on the marks of the brush, the acidity or alkelinity of the water, the vagaries of weather and position of the sun. And time.
The photographs are a guide to the kind of blue – it is not quite bright blue and not quite grey blue.
