Gail creates her lithographs herself from start to finish in this old traditional print making technique.
It starts with graining the slab of Bavarian limestone so it has a smooth surface on which to work. Next is drawing and painting the image, then etching it before printing. The surface of the stone is kept damp while printing so when the oil based ink is rolled over it only adheres to the image. The paper is laid on the top of the stone and the edition is printed using an litho press.
This whole process is repeated for each colour after which the stone is grained once more so it can used over and over again for many years.
The results are small editions as denoted by the numbers in the bottom left corner. For example, 1/10 is number one of an edition of ten.
