I’ve been exploring Collograph on the Year in Print Course at Spike Print Studio. Fascinated by the different effects using Intaglio and Relief Printing techniques. Enjoying experimenting with overprinting and colour on the collograph plates created from sketches and photos around Totterdown where I live. I love the acute angles of the roof shapes and the pattern created by the houses and rooftops layered upon each other as they climb up the hill. I’ve also created lots of textures using card, glue and papers to represent layers found within the landscape….even used seeds and bits of dried flowers!
Two weeks of monoprinting on the course ….used paper stencils initially and then a more painterly technique working directly on the screen Loved this! I liked the immediacy of the process, working loosely and with a range of different media onto the screen.
Loved playing with colour and experimenting again with the Totterdown house shapes.
