Black & White Ink

Made these partly to experiment with printing. The printing on plain paper did not satisfy, commercial printing paper worked best. Even then, how to present these? So far I have four A5 portrait 148×210 prints with 90 mm square images. They belong together.

Digital Art Studio – adventures in Ink

I am reading a book, Digital art Studio, about print making using digital images and ink jet printers. Lots of info & ideas for using more traditional media in combination.

To get an idea check out the websites of the three authors:

Bonny Lhotka

Dorothy Simpson Krause

Karin Schminke

I am busy gathering material, bought some “Rabbit Skin Glue” today, and InkAID.

Some images follow:

Landscape

I have these in mind to experiment with in the printing. These are about how I want them to look, but I will try different plain paper, wartercolour etc, and use “vivid” versions to compensate for the absobtion. I might also try over printing.

And these might end up in my landscape presentation of prints in the usual way.
