Scribbles, Screens And Sketches

19 Aug

Step 1

A while back, some years in fact, I made some photoscreens using little annotated drawings from one of my sketchbooks and I printed them up onto really nice Zerkall paper. Unfortunately, I didn’t like them. They didn’t seem, to me, to make the transition from sketch to screenprint. So I stuffed them in a draw and left them for a long time, thinking that I might reuse the paper in future.

Earlier this week I did some really abstract scribbles, layering random marks of pastels onto paper and today I decided that’s what I would try to do with some of these discarded screenprints.

So I started scribbling away with a black Daler Rowney soft pastel, rubbing with my fingers in areas to get a more intense black.

Step 5

Tomorrow, I’ll work on some more layers to add more depth and colour.


A lot of my artwork is available on my Artfinder gallery.  If you’d like to have a look, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    I can see trees, but then I always see trees!
