One of our major projects for this term is beginning to take shape. I’m expecting it to be a series of images (or ‘outcomes’) with a connecting theme – someone very special to me – as a form of memorial. Incorporating digital photo editing, screenprinting, and some painting. So here’s a little bit of where I’m at just now
It’s looking a bit murky, I’m venturing into muted tones… (it’s weird out there!)
This is a series of experimental backgrounds.
I’d forgotton the salt on watercolor trick. It is actual magic!
Restricting colors to focus on form and layers.
White ink, then dilute black procion dye, then collaged.
I’m looking to get a slightly dream-like, ethereal quality…
This one doesn’t fit with the theme, so will wind up in a future project some day…
Dabbling in doodling. I want a taste of the post WW2 era print designs.
Playing with ink… bound to get a bit spattery 😉
Too dark, but I can see it meeting up with that other one from earlier.
I’ve got some part-written posts on other comings and goings which I must get round to finishing! Feet not touching the floor much these days – but I’ll be back again soon! 😀

Hello, I have just come across your blog. Your experiments with line and layers, as well as colour and tone are great – they inspire me to spend a rainy afternoon playing with watercolour.
hi there, and such a big thank you – what a lovely thing to read to start my day! 😀
Glad to see ‘school’ is pushing you into even more explorations – fantastic surfaces, lines, shapes and colours. But YOU are still there and I can see how your pre-school work is influencing your present challenges. This is all grist for the mill and kudos to you Eph for flowing with it…
I know that feeling. I have so much to catch up. Love these explorations, will check back as soon as I can.
