More Rummaging

3 Apr

walnut

I had another rummage through the big drawers in my plans chest and found some more lovely papers that I’d used but didn’t do anything more with. This is a piece of paper stretched and gessoed then painted at random with my home-made walnut ink. I had taken it out on my journeys around Wales hunting megaliths and started drawing some ancient stone monuments on it, but I didn’t like the way it was going so stuck it in a drawer and forgot about it. Now, what am I going to do with it?

    It’s finished.
    Or add some text? About the stones?

      No, not even started. I might print some of those hacked up lino onto it, maybe?

        To test images- I print the plate/Lino on a sheet of Mylar film. Then overlay on top of your print. You can move it around and see if you like it.
        Let it dry and save the Mylar image for future experiments.

        Thanks for the tip, I have printed some onto Mylar now ☺

    I really drawn into this image, beautiful ink color.

      Thank you, Sharon. I made the ink myself. If you have walnut trees growing in your area, it’s quite easy
