Printmaking at Shadwell: Drypoint

At the studio today we sensitised our screens with our images, which had been copied onto acetate.  We let the screens be exposed under light for 20 minutes.  Then we washed the screens and removed the emulsion and dried them in the cupboard for five minutes.

Then we taped up another screen for printing the colour background.

Drypoint print:  I also printed my drypointwhich had been worked into with an etching needle.  I tried to get some variations in tone but all you can do is use hatching from single lines to hatched lines.  I guess you have more means of making marks with actual etching on a ground.


Archway Tower, April 2015 Drypoint

This image is Archway Tower under reconstruction and refurbishment.  I like the strong lines and the white plastic covered building.
