Photo Polymer Man

19 Jun

Our local print workshop has an artist-in-residence, Ros Ford, who is running  the first part of a masterclass in photo polymer printmaking tomorrow and I have a place on it :D. I’m really excited [what a geek, eh?]. So I spent today at my studio trying out some different drawing ideas to take with me tomorrow. This is about A4 size and based on a huge painting I completed a few weeks ago. It’s just a rough study as we’ll be drawing and painting directly onto Trugrain tomorrow, before transferring the images to photo polymer plates. Look at what you can do with True-grain! [Really, what a geek!].

Drawn To Print

22 May

Just got back from an excellent talk by the new artist-in-residence at Swansea Print Workshop as part of the year-long ‘Drawn To Print’ project. Her name is Ros Ford and she’s primarily an etcher, working on huge copperplate etchings of urban industrial landscapes. I did a quick scribble during her talk, which doesn’t do her justice so I hope she doesn’t see it. She’s with us for a couple of months and she’s running some workshops, starting this Saturday, with one designed mainly for artists who draw, but don’t print and it’s aimed to ease them gently into printmaking. All Ros’ practice is based on drawing from life. If you’re around this Saturday and fancy doing this workshop [or one of the future ones] you can book online on the Print Workshop’s website.
