Creative week in pictures

I've started on a new landscape drawing onto beautiful kraft/fiber paper.


Continued on a old drawing of Sau Paw looking very stuck-up.


Bought a new silkscreen!


Back in the screen printing studio after a months absence, oh how I've missed it! 
Here's my hedgehogs ready to be heated.


Went on a 3 hours class to learn the dry point technique. It's basically a steel needle engraving. I did this on a thick plastic sheet and this is somewhat similar to engraving onto copper. I managed to do only 1 engraving in 3 hours and there was so many elements...felt very old school which I like but knowing that the engraving is only good for about 10-15 prints before the scratched surface has faded off is somewhat disappointing. But I had fun learning a new craft!



Have a great weekend!

Love seeing you getting back into screen printing, and something new. So interesting. Your landscape/leaves piece has that old-world hand engraved look to it -- really nice.
Thanks for sharing.
More, please. . . .
