I have been having a lot of fun playing about with my new favourite printing technique, the watercolour monoprint. As I mentioned in my last post, I started with a ficitional landscape, which I then screen printed over in a rich black. I don't like it too much, but might explore that method again with another drawing/idea. I then made some magical sphere blobs of swirling colour.
I have been very preoccupied with circles recently. I am researching a whole new project. As these are visual experiments though, I wanted to try masking the plate to get a lovely crisp edge. Here is my first shot using vinyl to mask over my painting on the plate. I drew the fine cracked lines/circle on illustrator and put it through the Vinyl Cutter. I then made the green doily ones after I had the process down.
I took 4 prints of each- you can see how they have faded quite a lot, so I am going to experiment more, with different materials. More to come! : )
PS. Like the new website look? Had a little spring clean.
