Lino Printing – Art Challenge 49

My first experience of lino printing proved enjoyable and productive.

Based on a digitally collaged image of an angel protected by a colour bubble and an outer bubble I drew the image onto tracing paper to transfer onto a piece of lino.

The lino was then placed on a warming plate until it was warmed enough to make etching the lino have a buttery feel.

I etched along the lines of the drawing and then added the word Peace.

Then wearing an apron, hair tied back and barrier cream on my hands I applied ink with a roller onto a second piece of lino to create a background. I put the background lino sheet and a piece of paper through the roller press.

I then inked my etched piece of lino and then put the roller press over this to transfer the etched design onto the background.

I tried different combinations of background colour and sometimes added neat ink and white to add tone to the background.

I created many different iterations to become accustomed to the process. I then began to pick out key elements of the design in different colours.

I quickly realised that I should have reversed the letters for the “Peace’ slogan, but the sake of effect i have reversed the photos.

I thoroughly enjoyed the process and hope to try collograph printing next.

Dark Art – Art Challenge 47

I am cautious to stray into a darker psyche but have been motivated to do so a few times of late.

I aim to inspire and uplift people because I feel there is so much darkness in the world. The news media make hearing and seeing the darkness hard to avoid. I  made this short video about the news media in 2013.

I hope that in posting these creations I don’t offend or upset.

how the darkness of our suffering world suffocates my heart

 

When sadnrss begins to creep over

 

The cloud of darkness like a thick blavk sludgey tar blocking out the colour and the light
Desperation and despair when hope seems futile and I acknowledge that the workd is screwed

 

Romantic meals and rock concerts ruined by bullets and explosives. A bloody Friday that rocked the World.
