Today I did my first solar plate test printing using direct sunlight.

Working in preparation of the Solarplate workshops, organised by the Blue Monkey Network at Devonshire Collective, Eastbourne, UK

The solar plate was covered with a simple natural leave and a paper template, developed without an aquatint screen, using direct sunlight for the exposure. Inked in relief and printed on Hahnemuehle printing paper.
