The following is a record of one experimental process combining print making and painting.
Starting point: a line drawing of figures, one stacked on top of the other. The drawing is scratched in to sheetglass and transfered to paper through a press
The same drawing is done with oil sticks and transferred to paper through a press
The last two steps are combined, and both pressed onto paper.
The same drawing is carved into pinewood making a stamp. Rootlike structures fill in and surround the drawing.
The stamp, along with a bed of foam, are pressed into super alpha paper using a hydrolic press.
Watercolor is added
It is observed that when the watercolor is wet, the color is vibrant. Here acrylic medium is combined with water and watercolor in an attempt to capture this effect.
More detailed drawing is desired for a starting point
Drawing transferred to Stamp 2, carved out of MDF
Hydrolic press onto Super Alpha paper
Close up to show the relief and natural shadows.
Coated with watercolor and acrylic gel medium
Coated with Oil Paint and acrylic resin
Coated with Oil Paint and acrylic resin. Several layers of glazing using various colors
The original with no color is preferred. A change in material is chosen instead. Canvas is coated several times with Acrylic gel medium
More dynamic angle
The soft texture of the canvas is incredile, although cant be seen from this photo. The next phase will be experiments in using different fabrics and mediums. Next: rabbit skin glue on canvas.
