It’s been a busy couple of days with the pop up studio at Swansea Print Workshop, a lot of visitors coming in the see our work and talk to Hannah and myself about our residency at the Zaira Zaka print studio in Pakistan last year. It’s been lovely to meet so many people interested in what we’ve done. Today I finally got on with some printmaking, doing the first stage in a three-colour monotype, the Process Yellow. The inked perspex plate is put through the press to take a full colour print and once again with a second piece of paper to make a lighter ‘ghost’ print. You can read more about this 3 colour separation monotype process here.
The image is based on a drawing I did during the residency, while I was travelling between Rawalpindi and Lahore. I did around 50 of them in quick succession, scanned and edited them in succession in this video.
Tomorrow, I’ll be going back to complete the monotypes with two more colour plates, Process Red and Process Blue. If anyone wants to see this in action, please pop in to our pop up, we’re there 10.30 to 5.00.
