Experiments with the graphic techniques 2018 – ongoing

Dry needle

A technique where the contrast struck me, the harshness of the scratchingof the proces vs the softness of the second half of the process.

Learning about Lithography and it’s on my mind since. Lithography is an old print technique where you draw directly on a stone & with a little chemical magic and a press you can make prints. πŸ“– I'll try to share some of the process with you as I learn along the way. I’m in the first stage prepping the stone. Removing the previous image & graining the stone. They are heavy those stones πŸ˜… It’s a very long & physical process, an even bigger trial to my patience.🀭 An aspect that takes some adjustment from me but in the long run is an important one, allowing myself to take time to create. No rush, try not to pressure but enjoy the process. πŸ“πŸ˜Œ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Some of you may know from my story’s I’ve been volunteering for the local graphic-workshop. (mostly doing online stuff) and now and then helping in the workshop. Been learning alot, my colleagues are very skilled in the graphic techniques. It’s been great to learn from them! Being amongst fellow creatives has been really good. It’s been a boost to my social skills too. I really needed that when I first came to apply. Very grateful I get to learn these techniques in my own pace. 😌 So a shoutout to all the fellow volunteers @grafischewerkplaatsraaf for being awesome skilled and patient people. πŸ’• #grafischewerkplaatsraaf #litography #litho #limestone #printmaking #lithografie #grafischetechnieken #graphictechniques #lllustration #inkonpaper #doitfortheprocess #drawing #inktoberprep #drawer #arttechnique #artprocess #autism #inclusion #asd #add #beingincludedfeelsnice #learningnewthings #neurodiversity
