Frustration!

12 Apr

Having terrible technical problems blogging from the Pindi Printshop this evening. WordPress and Android don’t seem to like each other at the best of times, but throw erratic Internet access into the mix and I’ve just written off the last 2 hours! I shall go and do some tai chi breathing! Here’s the monotype I completed yesterday, based on a photograph I took in a modern mall in Islamabad. I merged it with a traditional Pakistani Paisley pattern. Pakistan has had a fabulous textile industry for aeons, but I was struck in the mall by the bland Western brands that seem to be swamping the planet and I fancied contrasting them in a monotype. The bright yellow mannequins are wicked.

I hope this uploads. If not, I’m off to bed.
