Hot Weekend

I had a somewhat busy weekend although it was a little hot today in Melbourne, so standing in front of an iron isn't really much fun. I got some acrylic paint today when I went to get some glass for the screenprinting to weigh them down. Today was my fourth attempt at exposing a screen and again it was overexposed. I'm getting closer to getting it right, but I find putting the liquid emulsion onto the screen quite tricky, as it is too thick in some areas and not coated on in others. I still printed the overexposed screen on paper with the aim of working over the print with paints, inks and other things. Below is one of the artworks I created from the prints, now listed on Etsy.


Hunting Game




This is a few of the other things I did this weekend and I will be taking them along to the Rose Street Artist Market next Saturday. I just checked the weather and it said showers so it might be an interesting day!

Honestly, I think your work gets better and better every time I see it! You'll have no problems with sales on the weekend. And with Christmas coming up....

you've changed your banner, haven't you.
I agree, with Christmas coming up you should get lots of sales.
Good luck with the screenprinting.

It's always tricky learning a new technique huh? You sound really determined so I'm sure you'll be a pro in no time! I love the artwork you made out of the print test. And that collage/painting (?) work down the bottom right is really striking. Good luck at the markets.

I can't make it there this saturday, I'm working, but hopefully will make it to one of the other saturdays you will be there... I love the bird bag! I want one!
