2010 was the year of relief printing and I have found it very satisfying as a creative process. But you know I found myself towards the end of the year just needing some .... lines... detail... something. As a result I enrolled on a screen printing course at the Edinburgh Printmakers. It was a weekend course and pretty intense.
You can see the result. There are 4 layers in all. Each layer was created on an acetate and then developed onto an emulsion layer on the screen. I wish I had more of a grasp of the technique before the course as I would have done more preparation. As it was I worked from photo taken this summer in Glenmore.
The views of scots pines in the Rothiemurchus estate have been haunting me all summer and I had been working on a linocut print. The resulting screen print is fairly rough and ready but I like it. Now I really want to get printing. I plan to combine relief and screen printing.
