If you are near Bristol tommorow evening from 5:30 please pop in to our private view to say hello, for the opening of our week long exhibition!
I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !
These are the three final prints I put up in the my degree show
( well versions of them, they vary slightly),
these are just printed cleanly without too much added.
I shall upload images of the slightly different versions, and hopefully with links to my etsy shop where you can purchase your very own copy! Soooon!
Carved Upwards and detail
Leaning Down and detail
Oriental Plane and detail
This is a detail of one of three (soon to be four) large copper plates ( about A2 size) that I am working on at the moment, and the first proof of it after etching to add more lines. they are going well if slowly!
I have tried to exaggerate the perspectives of the trees to emphasise some of the extraordinary shapes they make, and have been using a new process for me, sugar lift then spit biting.
Carrying on from last post, here is reworked print with a layer of tone added with the techniques of sugar lift and Spit-biting .
It is a techniques that helps create a much more painterly mark. I was pleased with the outcome because of the range of tones I have managed to make.
As I am new to Spit biting I was working without really knowing what I would get at the end, hoping I was leaving acid on long enough, or not too long!
These are two prints of the same etching, which was a drawing of a Persian Ironwood tree (Parrotia persica) I did while at Westonbirt.
I kept seeing these trees while I was there and going up to them and wondering what they were, and soon realised most of the time the small tangled tree with reddish branches in question was Persian Ironwood.
I loved the name, sounded exotic and always sent images off in my brain of warmer places, which was nice in the snow.
I decided to draw it onto an etching plate, but the problem was all the branches! they don’t seem to grow in any ordered way at all, so i did not try to sit there and untangle the branches before my eyes, I just drew what my eyes made out from the tangle. The first print is just as it is , the second on the right I left a bit more ink on the plate, and then rubbed it off where some of the branches were.
