I recently (hmmm last year, how time FLIES) took part in a wee bit of printmaking and I finally got myself sorted and took some pictures. I am super happy with these prints and I loved how they allowed me to experiment with being a little abstract and allowing myself to feel the line and texture and colour, and being able to know when to stop!
Printmaking is something that I love, but I lose patience with after a while. You need to be so very precise and you have to do A LOT of work before you start to see results. Where as with the nifty pencil, you see your work straight away. It made me appreciate sooo much more the amazingness behind some of the printmakers out there.
I tried a few different styles; lino, dry-point,, collagraph, monoprinting, and a bit of a mixure of all of the above.
These are the lino/drypoints. And they are available over in my etsy shop.
Let me know what you think!?
