Paula and Käthe

Something different today. I’m working on a silkscreen, planning a series of small screenprints based on my favourite artists. Here are the first two: Paula Mödersohn-Becker and Käthe Kollwitz, both active in the late 19th and early 20th century. I did some drawings based on photographs of the two artists, drew them onto the screen in pencil and then filled out the area to be printed with Speedball Diazo drawing fluid. I’ll let them dry overnight and then move onto the next stage, using Diazo screen filler.

    Oh, very nice, especially Käthe Kollwitz. The dramatic lighting and the play of light and shadow on her face are beautiful.

    I can’t wait to see the finished results. Now I’m going to check out the artwork of Paula and Kathe.

      Please do, they’re brilliant, although their stories are tragic, especially Paula’s
