I’ll be exhibiting work inspired by Dungeness and will be there in person, in a hut on the beach! A chance to meet me and my art.
My first screenprint using screen block. A two layer print based on Tarbat Ness lighthouse in Easter Ross, North East Scotland. It’s actually red and white but I only had time for two layers in the class where I made the print.
This image is also available as a blank note card. See shop for info.
Now that the sun is brighter I’ve been able to make some Cyanotype prints. Here’s one folded into a concertina which can also be assembled into a tower lock.
I’ve been learning how to print intaglio on plaster in my printmaking course at Leith School of Art. We’re still learning online but it’s not held us back!
This is a plaster diptych displayed in my studio together with a painting on found board.
I’ve been making collagraphs using card packaging as my plate, incising and peeling the card before inking it up for intaglio printing. The resultant print is then reassembled into a 3D object. I’ve added them to some previous lino print assemblies to make an imaginary city. This is all working towards my final project in my printmaking course.
I’ve been learning a few new printmaking methods on my course at Leith School of Art. Recent methods relate to working with simple tools and materials because the course is temporarily online until lockdown restrictions are eased.
This week we learned ‘kitchen litho’, a form of lithography using silver foil, wax crayons, Coca Cola, vegetable oil and oil paint. Here is an image of a plate and of two prints.
A book of lino cut prints and rubber stamping of words that have become part of our everyday vocabulary.
I’ve been using off cuts from my painted papers and reject prints to make small collages each day, to get my creativity warmed up. Here’s a small selection.
