Marks, Textures and Materials.

A short post, just to talk about today’s class. We looked at stone lithography, continuing on from last weeks quick sketch onto the group stone, although the print came out successfully, the instructor wanted to explain more about the texture and marks that can be achieved by different materials when applied in different ways. Although my last shells onto the stone were achieved by the ink and nib pen with a small addition of lithography crayon, I wanted to use a more varied range of materials, the ones that interested me the most was the touche wash, the demonstration that I was showed presented within the wash, some lovely and very expressive reticulations that I will use in my next stone lithograph.


Touche wash that produces reticulations along with different marks.
