Printing

Gelli Prints

 Leaf Print 1 - DIB

These are some of my early experiments with my new gelli plate. It’s 6″x 6″gelli plate from Gelli Arts. I am totally in love with gelli printing! It’s such a fun way of monoprinting – I love mixing colours on the plate, creating textures, patterns and maybe even some fine art eventually…

The best of my gelli prints are going to be stuck into a dedicated sketchbook I’ve bought especially for them. With gelli printing you are only limited by your imagination…!

The Blues…

Denim Watercolour

I treated myself to a new watercolour last week – indigo. Of course I had to try it out, so I did a series of small samples to go in my 14.5 x 14.5 cm sketchbook. Above is Indigo combined with Cobalt Turquoise.

Denim Watercolour 2

This sample is Prussian Blue combined with Indigo

Denim & Lace Watercolour

This sample is Pthalo Turquoise mixed with Burnt Sienna.

These shades of blue and turquoise are some of my most favourite watercolour shades. These watercolour samples inspired me to do a whole series of denim photos:

Usually it’s photography that inspires me to create some art but this time it was a little artwork that inspired me to take a series of photos. You can view more of these denim images in my Photostream on Flickr.

Abstract Art

Abstract Collage Mosaic - DIB

Abstract mixed media collages

Abstract Collage Mosaic 2 - DIB

Monday morning I set to work on some abstract collages for my 14.5 x 14.5 cm sketchbook. They are mixed media – mostly acrylic paint with some oil pastels and a little bit of fabric too…

I also did some watercolour samples for my sketchbook too. I love my watercolour paints and plan to do a lot of experimenting with them …
