Even though my Linear Containment book was fully completed and assembled earlier in the year I still have an itch to print the final plate in a different colourway and then perhaps stitch into it.
The original print looked like this:
Sepia and red inks on handmade Lokta paper, about 100gsm
Too stark, too much surface ink removed. No character, no depth, not enough ink colour blending.Sepia, red and orange inks on pale yellow Bamboo paper, 135gsm
The sepia and red were applied and blended into and around the shapes before orange was applied across the whole surface and wiped back.
This print shows significant improvement, good colour coverage and blending, well-defined shapes.
Sepia, red and orange inks on pale yellow Bamboo paper, 135gsm
The same process was used as for the previous print, with a change of emphasis from red to more orange mixed with sepia.
Good depth has been achieved, with bold shapes advancing and lighter line-work receding.
A solid afternoon’s work.
