I have a large apple crate where I put my art pieces that don't turn out as planned. Kind of "out of sight, out of mind". This is the crate's newest resident. Started out like it might turn into something, but I just over-worked the whole thing. I find that I do that a lot with watercolors. Still, not a complete waste as I learned quite a lot.
Watercolor has taken up my studio time lately, but I think it's about time to use my press again. I've done a preliminary drawing for a new etching. I'll need to change and adjust a few things and then get it transferred to copper. Also need to see what inventory I have in print paper.
I'm really trying to give watercolors another chance. I love the medium but find almost every attempt to be a battle. I started a small painting in my travel journal using Linda Kemp's negative painting technique. Not only did I have fun doing it, but actually liked the results.
I studied art many, many years ago, then drifted away from it pursuing a living. Ten years ago, through a love for photography, I revisited my art and creative side.
In this new adventure, I discovered printmaking. Linocuts and woodblock work hold so many surprises for me.
