TDV_0649a  A while ago I resumed experimentation with Gum Bichromate printing.

This is a method that goes back to the early days of photography. The  method

is not entirely controlable and means that each & every print is unique.

This image was taken in May during the visit of the “3 Queens” to the Mersey

for 175th anniversary of the famous Cunard cruise line.

The print is made from a digital photograph, using a paper negative created by      contact printed onto watercolour paper  using Payne’s Grey watercolour pigment.
