I don't just paint....
Updated: May 16, 2019
A few times I've experimented with different media and techniques and I thought I'd share a few.
I tried linocutting very briefly as part of my illustration course, but I decided to have another go, incorporating a portrait of an artist I admire, Frida Kahlo.
I was very happy with how it turned out, and I'll try to do some more in the future, but I need to work on my printing technique, some were quite wonky.
As well as linoprint, I also bought a wood burning tool from the mystery middle aisle in Lidl/Aldi (I can't remember which). After a few burns I tried out a few things. I found that success very much depended on the type of wood!
I used traced imaged for the most part as I wasn't confident enough to go fully freehand. Maybe someday I'l try a portrait!
