Back in the Print Workshop and experimenting with pure cadmium and indigo powder pigments. Monotypes on Somerset paper.
Local fisherman Sid Griffiths.
Monotype, ink made from charcoal from burnt boats.
Waiting for the 24carat real gold leaf to add for the gold tooth and shackle earing. This is a monotype, a unique, original, one off piece. I grind charcoal from a burnt boat and mix it with a clear printing medium to create an ink. This is rolled onto perspex and then I add darker areas with a brush loaded with the charcoal mix and wipe, wash, scrape and scratch the pale areas. The final image is put on a press, handmade paper carefully laid on top and then rolled through the printing press at high pressure before the moment of truth when I peel back the paper to see the final art work. I use this technique as it is the only way to get the effects of washing, wiping, scratching etc that I like. It's sort of a magical mix of painting, drawing and printmaking. Thanks Sid Griffiths bottle of rosé wine will be waiting for you soon! It's pretty massive. Double imperial paper. 30 x 44 inches.
NEW JUNE 2015 - MONOTYPES MADE WITH CHARCOAL FROM BURNT BOATS. Whilst living on a Folk Boat up Penryn Creek I collected some charcoal from another Folk Boat, a few berths down who had to be burnt she'd got so far to wreck and ruin. Mixing the charcoal with a printing ink extender (a clear medium) and a few drops of oil, I used a combination of black and white field techniques (wiping into rolled ink and adding extra ink). Each drawing/painting on metal or perspex is then printed on handmade paper on a printing press. There is usually just enough ink to create a second, fainter 'ghost' print. That is the most you can get so hence the name 'monotype'. Although the image is a printed one it is perhaps more helpful to think of the image as a drawing/painting. The marks though are so exciting and the moment of peeling back is always thrilling. The images are from early 20th Century photographs of sailors.
The roller, the ink pad, the plate and assorted tools for wiping, wet and dry brushing, scrapping and scratching and dabbing.
