My sketch for my lino cut assignment....i really am enjoying my printmaking class this semester, and this is probably my favorite design from this semester. Printmaking is definitely something i will keep doing while i take next semester off from school. I like hand coloring them, like the Crawdaddy Simone prints, so I plan to do that again for some of these prints. I bought some more lino plates to carve as soon as the semester is over. I'd like to print some stuff for friends and family for Christmas. Eventually I'd like to start an Etsy shop.
i got all my aquatints back from being graded, so i can finally post them! I had a little trouble with this final aquatint process. I didn't get the values I had planned on, but I think that will get better if i do a few more. We had to turn in a series of 6, so this is one of those 6. i also had a few extra prints that i hand colored with watercolors and inks. i love how they turned out! Defintely a project i will try again!
My better versions of this project are being graded right now...this one isn't registered correctly, so the layers didn't match up during printing, but for my 1st silkscreening attempt, i'm pretty pleased. I've wanted to know how to do this for so long, and i love it!!! This is something i can do from home, too, once i buy a screen and such, without needing to buy an expensive press or anything, so i'll be able to continue to work on it outside of school. i am interested in experimenting with color ink, and some various papers.
