Its been a busy summer and I have not had a great deal of time to go to the print workshop. So far - 5 plates made and printed
Throughout my residency I was overwhelmed by the greenness of Scotland in summer - - and so many greens - a definite challenge. I am much more accustomed to winter colours.
The watercolour sketch looked good with no colour in the sky - sadly the print doesn't - I may need to make an alteration.
I have started using monoprinting to make skies and lochs - this means that every print is unique.
This plate combines - collagraph, monoprinting and viscosity printing - again each print is unique.
Viscosity printing involves rolling over inks with diffent levels of oiliness. Oily ink repels non oily ink so I can roll over with blue then yellow in the sky without making green.
