Drawing on the smoked copper plates…
After being in the acid, and the ground wiped off…
First proof of the plate, (the plate being 5 x 6 cm).
as you might have gathered from above, Bumblebees are my subject for this series of plates!
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 !
Part of an ongoing project with the Artists book club that I am a member of , we are altering books then handing them back in for someone else to continue altering.
This was a copy of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night , which I thought would look nice with ink liberally splattered, as I was applying it, it made some of these rather pleasing images …
As I mentioned in a previous post, I was to do a workshop starting with Ink Drawing , here are a few pictures of some of the work going on from the ink drawing, to the next week, where we had a go at lino and/or mono printing with linseed oil , oil pastels and oil paint.
I had taken a range of object as possible Drawing inspiration, everyone just got on and drew something with gusto, it was great !
The next week produced some lovely prints in quite a short time, 2 hours!
It was a lovely experience to go and share some techniques with them, I had a great time, hope they did too.
I have been asked to do a Workshop for a local art group near Bristol, (Yay!) the first half will be about Drawing in ink, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a go first..
I had another go simplifying what I drew and really aiming for a layering of techniques, but trying to keep it bold shapes, with the little samples to the side . What do you all think? good examples of using inks qualities or not?
I am Working on this very large piece, for my Westonbirt exhibition.
It will be made up of lots of little drawings that I gathered from visitors to westonbirt in a week in April.
I asked them to draw their favourite part of the tree or a part they found interesting.
Now I am going to put them all together hopefully to make a whole tree out of the parts they have drawn.
These are some images of the first stages, I wanted a bit of colour in there so the background will be inked in the shape of a tree, the pics above are some of the details of the ink, which I have been letting do its own thing up to a point, to create interesting marks and layers !
