Experimenting

I'm experimenting with my paints to see which ones are okay for printing with my new screens.
The screen I used in the next print is really my favourite up to now.
I made the screen from a picture of water reflections that I took some years ago at the marina...
I manipulated the picture with Paint Shop Pro to get a black and white image with good contrast.

Ooooh! I love that second print. Very nice. The background looks so wonderful with the printed image.

I'm very envious of your new piece of equipment. :)
I can see why you prefer the second print - it looks wonderful, reminds me of ripples in water.

Really cool screen print of the water reflections. I have yet to test the water with screen printing. Looks like great fun! Next year I'll be lucky enough to be in a class with Ann Johnston and she will be giving us a demo of monoprinting.

Wow, This looks like great fun. I like both but, the second one, I like best. It looks like ripples of water, beautiful. You always create things that are so peaceful.

You seem to be having so much fun, I want to play too. It's a shame we can't all get together for a play date, we have so much to learn from each other. In the meantime, I guess this blogging is the next best thing.
