Meanwhile, back in the studio I have been working on some large monoprints and trying to get up to date with the daily drypoints before the exhibition in September.
For some of the monoprints I have been using viscosity inking. This is where you use inks at different viscosities (runny and sticky) which when applied using different density rollers do not mix. This allows the application of several colours with only one pass through the press. You also get the most amazing images left on the roller which look as though you should be able to print them - but they just don't come out!
Exhibition & Open Studio
The next Outline South West exhibition is at Harbour House in Kingsbridge from 3rd to 8th September - full details here. I will be printmaking in the gallery throughout the exhibition and showing a film about the project twice a day.
DOS brochures are widely available or you can download one here.
