I had a fun time creating Elements inspired fashion illustrations using inks, screen printed papers and Lino printed papers.

Life Drawings on Lino

Enjoy today! 

Life Drawings on Lino

Life drawing is important for my work as my art is very much about feeling good about life and doing one’s best to stay positive, as I’m female the characters in my art are most often female, so being able to represent women through drawing is important.  

A number of life drawing sessions were timetables for the start of the Foundation Studies course, as the figure is considered to be one of the hardest things to draw. 

I used a beautiful life drawing from UAL Chelsea and used Lino cutting techniques to cut into rubber. 

I added feathers when printing. I’m delighted with the outcomes.

Love the contrast between the colours

I love the vividness of the colours achieved and contrast with printing inks on the white paper.

I think I prefer this print reversed…

I cleaned the Lino with white spirit then cut further her into the Lino and re-inked and created more prints. 

The second part of this challenge was to Lino cut directly from looking at the life model using just the cutting tool and Lino. Here are the resulting prints with the bright colours being inspired by Alberto Giacometti’s ceiling murals that I saw in Zurich Police Headquarters last week.
