Adventures in colour


Here are three new prints – a kind of variant edition of three monoprints from lino all on Misumi Japanese paper. Colours were all chosen simply on a gut instinct and through the process of colour mixing. They are each two colours printed over black with a texture detail added to the central areas. For each, in my mind’s eye I had a picture of how they would be – a bright yellow and nut brown, white against strong blue – although in the mixing I added some green to the white and finally red against a kind of mauve which was a combination I dreamed about some days ago. Simple. I hope that in combination they make a trio that work well together and that each enhances the others.
