Today, I added the final colour to my church print. I started by created a small print block from an off cut of Lino and cut away to get the shape of a cross to represent the St. George flag. I then used some oil based red printing ink and added some oil to soften the ink. Using a small roller, I gently applied the ink to the block. I then placed the block on top of each print and applied pressure using a barren with about 15 passes of the barren. Below is a photo of the finished relief print. I have learnt a lot by producing this Lino print and hope to produce more prints and improve my technique.
Here are two new print subjects I will be adding to the project.
- Map of Stockport town centre
- 192 bus (Which will feature in the Central Library print)
Apart from working on my relief print today of the church, I have started a new etching entitled “Lowry in Stockport” which is inspired by a photo taken of Lowry sketching the viaduct in the early 1960s.
Here is a proof print I produced this afternoon Showing the initial line created from a drawing.
I added the sixth colour to my relief print of St. Georges church today. I used black with a little white to highlight parts of the church and the road in the print. The final colour will be added to the flag using a separate print block.
