I'm learning so much and having fun too. These are a sampling of second day in the studio where I focused on more block printing, stencils and using a gelatin plate. The dark cloth above has a faint row of prints and I have since printed two more times. The leaves on the left are mint leaves printed and the little circles below are from a plastic stencil. I'm taking notes as I work so fast and can hardly remember if I painted dark over light, light over dark or light over light??? Plenty of muddy pieces too which probably is the result of cutting corners and avoiding complex instructions. I see where David Smith is carrying a "Gelli" printing plate but I prefer making my own as I can control the size. It is easy to mix up and recipes are all over the Internet .I plan on a few more days printing with a gelatin plate and then I will try silk screen. How I put these pieces together is my 'real' challenge as I don't want to create a quilt and yet I do want to do some sewing. I'm also keeping my journal and researching some areas in biblical archeology...fascinating what has survived.
We finally had two days of scorching heat and then this morning the misty fog rolled in...we might get a couple more days of heat before Halloween but fall is definitely here.
