Cluttered Time

I did another printmaking workshop. This time the guest artist was Clint Cline who teaches at the University of Colorado. He a master printmaker who specializes in Monotype prints. These are one of a kind prints done on a plexiglass plate with inks, oil pastels and even oil paints applied in layers to the surface as well as the use of tools to draw back in to the compostion. It is abstract by naure although more objective compositions and designs can also be done.


Clint was extremely generous with his attention to the student, his tools and equipment, and even his own supplies such as paper - no cheap commodity in the print room.


The pictures of my work were taken at the final critique. Unfortunately, the room we were in had three different types of lighting - tungsten, florescent and indirect sunlight. Any two of these together is a photographic color adjustment nightmare, but the three together is crap. I did the best I could with them but they ain't right. I'll bring them back out when I re-shot them in consistant light. I need to photograph a large backlog of various art works for portfolio purposes. So, I ought to get that done in about two or three years. so, keep your eye out for that. hehe.


Anyway, I really enjoyed the class and got some stuff out that I like fairly well. I hope to get back to the print room and do some more work soon.
