The Lithography Process

"Father and Son"
by Jonathan Green

Father and Son is a hand drawn original lithograph by Jonathan Green printed on arches paper with 20 colors. Each color was printed individually from a separate plate. Each time a color is printed, the paper is left to dry for at least 24 hours before the next color is applied. The images you see on the following pages are actual color impressions from the plates used in the making of Father and Son. The combined effect is similar to the way an artist paints. On the last page is a animation of the entire process. (WARNING: 631k)
