Printmaking

Lithography

It's been quite a while since I made a post here and it's mostly because there are many other folks doing a better job. I recently attended two printmaking workshops and found that I had forgotten most of what I had learned earlier. These 3 fairly basic articles defining printmaking, the various types and sub-types might come in handy in case you are interested in this very interesting branch of fine art. They certainly will come in handy before the next printmaking workshop for me! :D

MOMA on What is a Print? - It is animated and highly recommended

American Artists with an Introduction to Printmaking for fine art and

Printmaking on Wikipedia has more details on the various types and sub types

The work above has been drawn and painted on a prepared limestone for a Lithograph, with a glass pencil and some diluted tusche. You can see the outcome here.

  8. wow, nice :D

    I honestly think you would enjoy www.drawsum.com.

    You can draw anything onto a canvas and it stays there forever (as long as no one draws over it!)

    try it :)
