The Intentional Printing Java Art Exchange based on Lynn Krawczyk’s new book was a ton of fun (shown above are my artworks). If you remember, we swapped 6″ square artworks using Lynn’s coffee cup graphic in Intentional Printing in any size plus three printing techniques from the book.
I first painted the 6″ canvas squares from Dick Blick starting with turquoise paint, then adding ultramarine to the turquoise, and finally adding green to the mixture. Every canvas is in the same color family, but different. I purposely left the paint streak-y, so the variations would show. Artwork shown at the top of the stacked canvases is by Eileen Hallock (left) and Jay Dodds (right).
I adhered the artwork to the canvases with gel medium, brayered over them carefully, and left them to dry under weights.
Here is my java art wall (yes, it is painted espresso brown) with its 12 new additions.
