As I’m getting ready to start the first part of the OCA’s Printmaking 1 course, I thought I’d look back over some old prints I made. I took some photos and put them here.
Some of the prints are ones I made on the York College course – the etchings and the woodcut with chine collé. Some are ones I just played around with at home – the animals, the portraits, the mermaid. The fishy ones are monoprints I did on an OCA day course, and later printed over with a linocut goldfish.
The one I’m most proud of is the one pictured here – it’s a two colour reduction linocut of Robin Williams and Mike Heron from the Incredible String Band. It’s A3 in size, so quite big for me, and I was pleased with the way I captured their portraits and added the vines and text.
My art supplies from Great Art arrived today so I’m hoping to start printmaking at the weekend!
