I spent Saturday working on two dry point prints using my new portable press. Here are my latest offerings for the project;
Printed on 200 lb ‘Langton’ watercolour paper by Daler Rowney.
These last few months, I have been working out what subjects to print next and what type of printmaking to exploit. I recently purchased some very thin clear plastic sheeting from Intaglio Printmakers to produce a new series of dry points for my project. My first print will be of Lyme Hall. I will be using a pencil sketch of the hall I created last summer as a starting point. My second dry point will be of Vernon Mill which has an established artist community. I visited the Spring Open Studio at Vernon Mill on Friday evening and met up with some old friends. I also visited the Manchester Print Fair No.9 at the People’s Museum yesterday. There was a lot of original and unique work for sale from a lot of talent artists. It maybe worth my while participating in one of these fairs in the future.
