Something new

I did something completely new today. Something I’ve never done before. I did a workshop on screenprinting.

I took a day off work and played with emulsion, screens, tracing paper, inks, squidgy boards, vacuum paper desks to create this –

It was wonderful. I made six lovely prints – each one with its own imperfections and paint mixing patterns.

The exhilaration I felt made me realise how much I miss doing something new. How much I miss writing. But this will have to do for now…

  1. I like the colors of your prints! And we all deserve to do something new every once in a while. :) Hope you’ve been keeping well!

  2. Lovely doggie. We miss your writing too

    yaaay! Do more of such things. And I can’t tell u enough how much I miss reading this space. You break a million hearts every morning, with no new post.

  4. What fun! Wish you would write more often. Well, maybe you’ll make more prints and upload those. :)

    That dog looks very worried.

    Why?

  6. Dog?? I saw a turbaned guy with a shadowy nose, beard, :O face and worried look. :D

    Anyone else see what I am talking about?

    Oh btw, hi Neha. Am new here. :)

  7. Vidya – All good, and yes – doing something new was really nice. Really liked getting all inky. :)

    Uttara – I miss writing – but perhaps the question is – should I devote myself to writing something longer, something substantial. And if one has to happen without the other. I think I need to use this space to rant a bit more instead of assuming that only finished pieces, well thought out etc should make it here. :)

    KG, Banno – Thank you lovelies. I do want to write more. Just waiting for work to stabilise a bit. Will get scribbling soon. If nothing, will write about what I made for dinner!

    km – It was about to play holi. That’s why.

    alice-in-wonder: Oh dear. I don’t quite see it – but perhaps art in all its forms is about walking hallucinations! Welcome to the blog..
