Still going with the Gelli plate. Slow going. Finally found a way to make durable stencils. Decided on repeating 2 stencils per painting. Limited palette works well. Focus is sometimes created by over painting. In conventional printmaking, each 'pull' gets more detailed - not there yet. I"m using pastels to draw another level over over top.
I like these. My most successful abstracts yet. Very consistent look. Fun to make. Affordable on paper. They look nice with a white margin. Can be mounted on wood or framed.
Experimenting with printing on vellum Bristol and unprimed canvas. I use the duds for collage, and some of them are inspiring bigger painting designs. This has wheels, not least because it's fun. I did a demo at a studio open house and it drew a crowd. Lots of people want to try it.
