This weekend I took the same class on Moku Hanga with April Vollmer that I took last year; my first Moku Hanga anniversary, the first anniversary is, appropriately, PAPER. Having found out the image size the week before, I took some time in my design. I wanted to see how much one could do with just two colors. The PAPER we got in class was a very nice, strong, very white, but delicate PAPER, which was quite unsuited for the large areas of color in my design. I think I am a glutton for color, though you wouldn't know it from the way I dress. When I was young I used to beg my mother to take me to the shopping center so I could look at the clothes displays. I loved seeing all the colors together.....My print in class was not so good because the paper had a buckling issue due to excessive dampness from my large color areas and so registration was off. And I wasn't entirely happy with the design. Tenaciously and doggedly I cut and tweaked at home and printed on some thicker paper, Masa. Not the best in the world, be adequate for my needs. This print at 7 X 9 inches is bigger than I am used to working. So far all my work has been 5 X 7 inches or smaller. I experimented with a few color combos, shown are the ones that worked at all........
Pink!??? I never thought I would make a pink armadillo!
Cobalt blue and gold, my scanner doesn't want to show the blue correctly.
Again, Cobalt blue and olive green with a little gold in the corner.
