Ideas and experiments
A second day for me at Hot Bed press and a day for experimenting with backgrounds. . It feels good to be getting a feel back for printmaking again. I wish I'd done this a bit more systematically before and taken photographs to record what background I'd placed under the main figurative image so I could repeat a version if I wanted to. (It's not been a great time for thinking things through.) For some reason my digital experiments in photoshop resulted in a change of colour from green to purple and I particularly like this colour combination. As it happens I know there is another pot of printing ink ready mixed that the owner no longer wants. I can't wait until next Monday to try it out.
An horrendous journey home with a delays and cancellations. I left the studio at 3.30pm and finally arrived home at ten to seven. I can do without that happening too often.
