I’ve spent a week playing with water-colour paints, exploring how they can be transferred to print paper outside of the normal landscape or still-life painting arena. In the past I’ve gone down the traditional route of water-colour painting and haven’t found it works for me but as I have the supplies I thought it would be interesting to see how they could be incorporated into art pieces that use my print making skills.
So, initially I’ve been looking at what effects I can achieve with water-colour. Later I’ll start overprinting with oil-based inks through a printing press.
Variable water effects, directly on to paper
Dribbled paint on plastic & paper
Dribbling + water-soluble crayons on plastic & paper
Dribbling + stencils on plastic & paper
Dribbling and drawing with water-soluble crayons & pencils on plastic & paper
An interesting exercise and it’s given me food for thought about where to go next with this idea.
