Printmaking is the art of the for Day 21 of Twenty-eight Days of Art.
I am taking a "Printmaking for Fun" class this spring and today was the first day of class.
I did three prints, but they did not turn out what I envision for my prints.
I randomly put down color first, then laid down the bird stencil on the right and went over it with white paint and added a feather. I think my paper was too wet.
I randomly put down color on this one too, but I was trying to make hills and valleys and sky. I also laid down a fence stencil I had, but it did not come out as clearly as I was hoping.
With the color left on the plate, I went over it with white and laid down a couple of stencils and printed on black paper. I was hoping the color would come through more.
I guess I was just not in the mood to do printmaking today ;-(
