Is it wrong to admit my week tends to have a dipole; the weekend and the workshop? Too late, said it now.
I used to rent a full day in the workshop and to be honest the price is not to bad in comparison to others’. However, it is still money flowing in the wrong direction and I have found the half day allows a morning in preparation which would otherwise had been half spent in situ, so no loss there.
The heatwave marches on into another week, which is most welcome to me and so we hot dogs laboured with inky fingers and cut out shapes, sketchbook to hand, creating more to be put through the press.
The above plates have been cut and used for previous printmaking, but enjoying the muted colours of the ‘spent’ plates, I decided to ink up some more in a similar fashion.
The resulting print lets colours come through from each plate, It is like building up a conversation, discovering personality (and is most enjoyable).
