OK, so I only managed to draw on 10 out of 28 days in February. I should be feeling like a failure, but I’m not. This is more drawing in a month than ever before, so I’m at least on the right track. I’m resolved to start my new drawing challenge and run it throughout April, meantime I’ll try to fit in what I can with a busy work schedule.
And it’s not like I’ve done nothing else, creatively. Paper-making with size was interesting, and time-consuming, and I’m also back at the print studio every Friday.
Ah, the beauty of clean sheets of glass waiting to be rolled with luscious printing inks; the sticky gluey sound as inks are mixed up into exactly the right colour and consistency …..
….. the choosing of paper – tearing it to size, soaking and blotting it ready to receive an image. Bliss!!
Much better. Don’t like the colour scheme? Well, that’s because you don’t know what it’s for. Let me give you a clue, these prints will be an integral part of my latest artist book using the original prints from this post. They looked terrible at the first stage as well – but wait until the project is completed before you criticize. It’s going to take a few weeks.
