Saturday 17th November LAURA BOSWELL

LAURA BOSWELL
Today was our printmaking workshop with Laura Boswell. Her publicist and husband very kindly provided a plethora of photographs which he has shared with us. Here are just some of them.
Here we all are, eager and ready to start

 
       

                          Laura led by example every step of the procedure
This layout shows the toolbox and the brushes for cutting the plywood and painting the watercolours

To begin we transferred our individual designs onto tracing paper and then to the plywood



Laura advised on colour separation - a block cut for each design on the board

Laura had prepared the printing papers in advance
 The papers were dampened and sat inside sheets of dampened newspaper in a plastic folder.
Each print was placed back into the folder to maintain the damp pages

Yes Ruth we did. The funny thing was they were all kept in the dampened papers so they will not be seen until complete. SORRY :(
