Textured paper produced a greater amount of ink pooling and pinholes than I normally like, but it’s all part of learning curve.

So in the movie, this guy was making this repetitive chopping motion. I thought about doing that with ink; chopping up the inks and pulling them into the matrix naturally with much less emphasis on keeping it clean/orderly.

I was watching some old movie where they were… oh nobody wants to hear me go on. Here’s an idea I’ll be working on for the next month or so based on what I’ve recently done.
It’s also a variation on the dark pools series I did a year ago.

Two layers of poorly mixed split fountains.
The first layer is opaque black and white, the following layer was about 30% transparent. I was referencing classical layer painting techniques… perhaps I should lead with a burnt umber layer next time.

Experiment. I taped the screen off instead of making a stencil. I’m exploring the way ink mixing prior to pulling effect the outcome of the print. The first was mixed modestly, then moreso etc.. 2/3/4 are interesting to me.

Run go check this out, download them all, and study up! It’s not often we get a database of high resolution images of a master at work.

I’m a painter. The street sign at my new house was pretty decrepit, I fished the numbers out of the bush in the front yard and painted/ made this from scrap I found in the basement. New art as soon as I can assemble my desk.

This is really the last piece that will get made since I’m moving tomorrow (very excited! Giant studio!). As you can see it’s on boxes of my stuff.
I had one last commission, for a single print. He loved the BW images and asked if I could make something similar, was well received.
