Spent today and Tuesday in the Print room, printed up a couple of the black layers for Kris’s artwork just as tester to make sure the exposure was right. Think it turned out fine. Also spent today actually using the facility for a prolonged period of time running an ad hoc class with a friend (guinea pig) just to see how the room functions over a whole day. all in all a successful days printing, room works well. Hopefully it will be of great use to future students and maintained enough for it to survive the rigours of frequent use!
Kris’s image tests.
So spent Friday working out exposure times for the new print resource, think I have found the perfect timing’s for the moment but these will need adjusted as time goes by and the bulb ages. Really excited about the prospects of doing some photo screen printing! Anyway into the last week of my residency and its going to be busy busy! Helping out with the print rotation again as well as firing out some prints in the workshop.
Thought I’d upload a couple shots of the soon to be up and running print room in the college.
Watching Neil give an quick demo in not using black to darken colours but instead use opposite colours from the colour wheel. Anyway stumbled across this and thought it pertinent.
so thought now that I’d finished the layout of the top of the set of drawers I would upload some terrible phone images of the first cuts, always like this stage of a project, the hard slog of laying out the writing is over and you get the first glimpse of what the finished piece may look like. Have in the past been tempted to leave a piece with just these shallow cuts detailing the writing, a bit liek line work in a tattoo, though have not yet done so, maybe its just to easy to leave it like that? I have no idea. Also in other news the print room is almost ready for use and have to say I personally cant wait itching to get my hands inky. Anyway cue the really bad phone pics…
So some loose collage ideas for a suit of prints I have in mind to do (maybe using the new print workshop if possible!) sorry horrible phone camera images as always..
