I really love still lives. This woodcut was done combining some details of my sketches.
I liked some parts of the finished print so much that I also did some smaller prints on gift tags.
When I found this old lino plate which I was not quite happy with, I decided to cut away as much as possible and leave only the basic objects of the still life on the plate.
Now I like it somehow better than before…
I printed some of my woodcuts on small postcards.
I want to set up an online shop at Dawanda, which is a German online platform for DIY products, where I am planning to sell some of my smaller prints as well as these cards.
But it still needs a whole lot of preparation to set up the shop…
Last week I bought some wooden panels and did my first woodcuts.
If you choose a soft wood like limetree, cutting into wood doesn’t require much more strength than cutting into a lino plate.
You can also use linocut colours for printing.
Here are the first results:
I rediscovered pastel drawing pencils and did these small pictures with them.
They should also serve as inspiration sketches for a series of woodcuts I want to do.
Let’s see how that’s going to work out…
What else is there to do on a free weekend than working on some prints?
I wanted to turn some of my quick pencil sketches into colourful linocut prints and voila…
I think they turned out pretty nice.
What I want to do next is to use these motifs and print them in larger formats…
A series of linocut prints inspired by plants, pots and the small everyday objects around me:
It’s been quite a while since I last found the time to do some creative work because I’ve been teaching a lot of courses recently.
Nevertheless, here are some small drawings of little everyday objects and plants.
I made them using graphite and colour pencils.
I like to use a kneaded eraser to remove parts of the drawing before going over the part with colour pencils again.
Today I made these small sketches of everyday objects on collaged paper in postcard format. When I have time, I want to make a whole series of such small still lives…
