I have always thought the more you do, the more you do! I made a commitment to making a print a month. Of course this means coming up with ideas and making drawings, then making collagraph plates and printing editions. This discipline seems to be having a positive effect on me.
This month I have created this suite of prints about
little birds on washing lines.
I have been playing with very simple plate making, just using glue and cut grey board.
The washing is made from 'skim and repair' with
wall paper pressed into it.
I am still teetering on the brink...should I leave the washing as an embossed texture allowing the light to pick up the pattern or shall I ink and print these plates? What do you prefer? Let me know, it's always good to hear from you.
