Lock, stock and two smokin' printmakers






Session number 4 at Christine Lock's Press, picking up where we left off here .

I created a line image plate, inked it up and proofed it then inked it up again and overprinted several of the prints of Marrakesh that I made last session. So now we have a method that works with strong blocks of colour and design combined with a method of introducing line, detail and iconography. Magic! Well actually we had a catastrophy yesterday with one of the over-prints, such is life. Into every life some ink must fall.

Illustrated left the line image plate proofed-up right: the combination.
