Lets Keep Rollin’
These days I’m reading books that should inspire to move on, to never give up, to learn to be happy (with quite a few ideas how to spend 2015 I need to stay focused). Believe it or not, the trick is to have a goal and to invest time and effort, so that once you’ve reached your success, you could be sure you’ve done it yourself.
As this year’s direction is More Art (and Photography), all I have to do now is keep on rollin’!
In the last few months I have accumulated a pile of polystyrene boxes. Everyone around has been trained that I need them for my so called projects. My enthusiasm, that can be observed when I find this material, has been contagious – “look, I bought some cheese and it was on a polystyrene board!”.
The technique I use is really simple – carve out lines using an ordinary pen (much easier than cutting wood or lino and you don’t need any special tools).
Before I figured out how to create prints that would contain more than one colour (there’s quite a lot of information on the internet) I decided to experiment. The end result – colourful mixed media prints.
Far away from being perfect… (as it’s a bit hard to match the two prints – by the way, I marked one of the corners of the board on paper using pencil, when making the first, i.e. reference print and tried to place it in exactly the same spot the second time), but art shouldn’t be perfect, should it?
