We had an assignment to do for art school. A personal project where we were to take a building that interested is and take photos, do studies, experiment and generally play.
My inspiration is the sunroom that my husband and I built, it was made with reclaimed Windows and clad in the outside with reclaimed copper. I don’t own that house any more, but I visited recently and I love the way the copper is weathering. I did lots of drawings, collage etc. But then reduced a drawing to a simple line drawing and made a lino cut, and printed fabric. I am surprised and really like how it turned out, it has a very 50s vibe.
These are some of the in process experiments
Some more fabric.
This was a print onto an old baby wipe that had been used to mop up ink.
Drawing on gesso on cardboard.
Faint lino print on this one, copper leaf on a watercolor background
The original photo that I was working from.
Now I’m going to make an art quilt I think, using the same simplified line drawing for the blocks
