detail of proof
I have been back to the print shop, and was introduced to Pronto Plates- a polyester lithograph plate. It is a process which I know nothing about. SO back to square one. My first few proofs were so-so. I ended up using them as foundations for drawings with gouache, gesso, ink, transfers and the rest of the materials on my worktable. Here's one I am working on-it's about 12x18".
reworked proof, maybe still in progress
