During my holiday …

July 27, 2015

One of the highlights of my time in Rio was ‘doing’ art with my daughter. She is also a printmaker and like me self taught. So we both enjoy any opportunity to learn even from each other!

She belongs to a printing community and I was able to take advantages of their facilities on a few occasions.  Printing is practiced a lot in Rio but the techniques are traditional;  the inks, tools and paper we find so easily in UK are almost unavailable and very expensive. So wood and metal are the most used with black and limited colours.  With the most outstanding results; I was in awe and determined to hone my own traditional methods.

Nonetheless,we spent many happy hours drawing, painting and printing with our also limited collection of supplies from UK ;  even if we were spied with gentle disquiet …
