Country Girl Print

This is transformed from the previous painting "A Girl Wearing Qi Bao".
I don't quite like the effect of this painting and rework it with the map and newspaper collage. I feel that the map represents the mountains and rivers of a village very well.

Roses, Music and Love Letter Print

I feel that the roses along is very nice. I add some music notes as background to enhance the romantic feeling of the piece.

Just a note, this is developed by following the photo in the blog "Inspiration Around Us". This week, it has a rose photo for inspiration.

The following are Large Laminated Prints (LL) and Laminated Print Mounted on Woodblock (LPWB).

For You Romantic Rose Flower Print

I came across this blog "Inspiration Around Us". This week, it has a rose photo for inspiration. The roses are nice but it is a bit difficult.

I was initially not serious on working on it, just drawing roses for fun till the roses turned out to be interesting.

I sketched several versions of them, tried watercolor and finally settled on this illustration.

To add some interesting to the background, I add the Chinese calligraphy images.

I like how the roses turned out to be.

Lily Pond Reductive Original Linocut Print and Printmaking Exhibition

I managed to create the Lotus Pond using reductive printmaking method as well. The print is created by the several steps involving cutting and applying colors:
  1. cut away the white flower part, apply pink color
  2. cut away the pink flower part, apply green color
  3. cut away the green background, apply dark green color
  4. ink dark red in the plate and wipe away the dark red in the lotus leaves part in the plate so that the dark red only apply to the lotus flower bud
I like the pink shining through the  green.

 Silkscreen Print
I went to a printmaking exhibition last night in "The Blank Canvas" art gallery.  It is an exhibition of series of artworks by 8 emerging print making artists. I like this silkscreen piece.

The Red Tree Original Acrylic Painting

I finished the painting as the first thing in the morning. I adjust some colors to make it more autumn look.
I like the texture from cutting the board.

I set up painting studio in my balcony now. It is bright and nice with fresh air.

Size: 6 x 7.5"/15 x 19cm
Medium: PVC foam board and Acrylic Painting

The Red Tree Original Acrylic Painting Work in Progress

I feel very attracted to the texture of the PVC foam board that I cut to created relief printing plate. For example, the poppies plate:
I thought it would be very nice to paint on the board using acrylic painting. It will have the texture from the cutting.

This is what happened to the "The Red Tree" painting. It has the beautiful texture similar to the one that is created using texture medium.
The Detail Texture
The PVC foam board is about 3mm thick. Thus it is quite nice to be framed as a usual acrylic painting.

Lotus Pond Original Relief Print

This is the limited edition relief print from linoleum cut. I am thinking of making 5 editions.
The print is printed on heavy watercolor paper.
I also try something new. I print one version using Acrylic Black Color and then apply watercolor on it. The first one is using water based ink and it is not suitable for watercolor wash, i.e., the black color will come out and make other colors dirty.

I like the color version as well. It is very pretty.

Laptop Skins

This week's laptop skin orders are very interesting. It has orders for some rear pieces such as Love Birds Home Sweet Home, Summer Flower Blue and Summer Flower Gray.

This is the lovely Love Birds Home Sweet Home  laptop skin. If not for the order, I almost forgot about the existence of the design.
I like this small mini cute Bird Pond Pink laptop skin and wrist skin set. It is small size about 20 x 37cm. I can image how pretty it is when they are applied on a mini laptop.

Poppy Reductive Original Relief Print

A new technique of printmaking using reductive method was taught in last week printmaking class. The reductive method prints something on a paper and then cut some away to make another printing on the same paper till you get the final result.

It requires a lot of planning to work on this method such as the colors, sequence of cutting needed and number of editions you want to produce.

In this work, I planned to print two pieces. I position them using tapes to align them properly during subsquent layers of printing. The gomuban, an easy to carve vinyl rubber plate is secured in the middle.

Once I printed the color I wanted, I cut away it and thus it will not be covered during the subsequent printing.
This is the third printing and last one, when the light colored green is cut away.
This one is created by using the final plate with black ink. I found the black and white one is also very pretty.

New Product Brass Resin Brooches

I found these lovely brass brooch frames in a jewelry supply store some time ago. I love the oval shape and the lace frame. It would be perfect to make some brooches with my paintings.

It is a long weekend because of Singapore National Day. The visitors have left and now I have more time. I made quite number of them using my paintings today. Each brooch is made with a print from my paintings and covered with thick layer of resin to give a beautiful sparkling glass look.

Size: 1-7/16" x 1-3/4"/35 x 45mm. The image measures 3/4" x 1"/19 x 25mm.

It would be a perfect item to add sparkle to any type of outfit.

The pendant is mailed out in a pretty jewelry box so that you can give it as a gift.
