Well, I took 5 or 6 printmaking classes when I was in school, so I had some practice haha. I miss it.
Good luck on the two layers. Don't be scared to just jump in there! I found it really fun to mix mineral spirits with my ink in a lot of pieces. It really brings some life to it when you start using color.
really nice, i've been getting into printing a little lately, mono and silkscreen mostly, but wood and lino interest me, this is beautiful. puts me in mind of aboriginal artwork, more the composition and the different thickness black lines snaking along the page than the colour scheme. more please!
I know what you mean. I'm always more impressed by things I havn't a clue how to do. It's funny, I just recieved a degree in graphic design yet i'm more interested in trying to make something of myself in digital painting.
Ah that\'s very pretty. It kind reminds me of the linoleum prints I tried awhile ago (unsuccessfully) where I carved out the linoleum with a chisel (cut my hand) and made a design like a stamp that I printed onto sheets of paper. The tree looks very nice.
Well, I'm very accustomed to critique considering I went to school for this. They don't let you play all nice in class if you know what I mean. So, I like to critque as well. Interaction with other artists helps you grow so much faster if you can take it in. Honesty is my policy too, but I agree there is no need to be rude no matter the situation.
