_DSC0646_DSC0649_DSC0647_DSC0648_DSC0654_DSC0656What an awful title for this post… sorry but that’s all I’ve got for you right now.  It’s late here and titles aren’t going to be produced from this mind anytime soon.  The point is, here’s the finished piece.  Surprisingly, this took me much longer to make than I expected.  Here was the process:

– Take a sheet of Rives BFK and handpaint the turmeric ink on it.  With this one, I wanted to put only a slight amount of water.  So I used a squirt bottle and sprayed light amounts of water in certain spots.  I use the word “handpaint” because I literally put gloves on and painted it on with my fingers.  There was a certain airy look I wanted and I knew I’d only get it this way.  Plus, I felt a little distanced from my pieces with a brush.  Don’t know what that change is about, but that’s what’s going on.

– Make the drawing.  I drew the little shapes in pencil and was careful to not smear the turmeric anymore.  It isn’t set on there, and there are still pretty big chunks of the spice…

– Make the cutouts…  BFK is awful to cut through.  I don’t know why I do this to myself. I had to take two trips to the hot springs out here to get the pain out of my arm….

– Make the drawings on a second sheet of rice paper that align with the BFK cutouts.  Then cut those little guys out…

-Add the final layer of BFK on the back.

Banana Woman

 

 

My latest Photoshop experiment is a banana lady.  I’ve been wanting to make a lot of ladies with screenprinting, but this is the easiest way to do it.  Maybe a painting will come next but for now this is it!

Steps:

Made her sketch by hand.

Scanned into photoshop and then inked it out.

Color filled everything and added shading

Drew parts to go into the pattern.  Made a fill pattern and that was that.  Pattern Circle
