Print in progress: Stage 5

Some dark grey and brown to bring out the buildings; again, masking to keep the green of the previous layer clean.




Thursday, 17 October 2013

Print in progress: Stage 4

More dark green, with careful masking to keep the rest of the image clean.




Tuesday, 15 October 2013

Print in progress: Stage 3

Darker grey to darker green gradient. Careful placing of the roller on the plate was necessary to keep the border between the grey and green in the right place.

Etching lino again

Etching lino again, this time trying to make a figurative picture.

I painted a bird shape with varnish, and then etched the block. The solid black in the middle is where the varnish held on, and resisted the caustic soda; the soft gray around the outside is where the block was etched. The white bits within the bird shape are where the varnish didn't resist the caustic soda.


Then I printed the block with a mask over the background.



And then on coloured backgrounds.
