Decisions.....

I've decided that I find it really difficult to make decisions and my head is spinning with options regarding my digital drawings. The size is easy as at least initially I'm only printing same size as produced - the dilemma comes with the printing - what paper, how many etc. so I've drawn a very small 'pinch' piece to experiment with. I'm currently waiting for print samples on bamboo paper (which is environmentally sound, a lovely off white colour but not as heavy as the other papers), a photo rag which has a very smooth surface and an Etching paper which is matt with a slight texture. Hopefully when I see them side by side it will help? I've recently found a printing company in Nottingham - printing on metal - which prints on all sorts of interesting materials (aluminium, fabric, wood, glass) and I also quite like the idea of laser etching onto acrylic or glass sheets.......

test digital drawing print

The print of my digital drawing arrived this week - I didn't proof it because I didn't want to affect the outcome i.e. be tempted to try to make it look like a pencil drawing, just sent the file to be printed at default setting. I'm pleased with the result -  in between a pencil and ballpoint drawing - but it was really weird to finish a drawing and have no idea what it was going to look like at full size!

One down, one to go...

I have a meeting in early December with Derby Museum and Art Gallery when I need to take along snapshots of work which will be potentially shown in my exhibition next year. Seemed like a good idea to see it as a deadline for finishing the two large pencil drawings I had on the go - so one down (above) and one to go...
