At the weekend …
At the weekend I attended a drypoint and collagraph workshop. I was hoping to learn another printing method that I might use with my lino cut; but that seems that will not to be so easy.
So, I am in a bit of a dilemma; this however is not an unusual state for me; as you know.
During the last couple of years or so I have found the new methods of printing overwhelming so I have adopted some and discarded others. The decision making can be painful or a welcome relief; but neither happens easily. I have to consider time, cost and ability.
Drypoint and collagraph is quite different to lino cut and will require different tools and materials. Then there is the time; perfecting these new found skills will not come overnight.
Then, there is for me the question: When does one’s mish mash of learning material becomes one’s style and able to show it confidently without having to add ‘’ work in progress’’ ?
