Suzanne Valadon Screen

21 May

suzanne step 1

 

I’ve been away in Denmark for a week, visiting some dear friends, one of whom is a fellow printmaker. It was lovely to get away and just be a tourist. I deliberately left my diary behind (I still keep a paper one, not electronic) and I didn’t even do any scribbling. Just chilled out. But back to reality now. I’ve made a start on another small screenprint, one of a planned series of favourite artists. This is Suzanne Valadon, a French 19th / 20th century painter. I hope to eventually do a series of small screen prints to take up to the Art Car Boot Fair in London next month. I transferred my drawing to the screen with an HB pencil and used sable brushes to paint on some Speedball Diazo screen drawing fluid. Tomorrow, when it’s dry, I’ll move onto the next stage.
