New school term and i'm back to printing again : )) After lots of detailed pieces recently, it was really nice to return to some bold, simple patterns and prints. It takes a lot of restraint for me to keep it simple- and i have to be far more disciplined when making these prints than if i create a very detailed piece. I have to keep in my mind, less is more as i'm always tempted to add...a scroll here, a leaf there and before you know it I've got a decorative monster on my hands!
So concentrating on line and colour, i created these fun new prints using individual plates, that i can arrange on the paper as i like. I really enjoy this way of printing as it allows you to play around with the composition of the print and also experimnet far more with colour combinations. Almost like a lino print jigsaw puzzle!
