Soup, Soul and Success!
Ahh monday not a huge fan of mondays! I had a lovely semi-quiet weekend. We went to watch some local football which was a bit of fun, made some fantastic winter veggie soup with the brilliant idea of putting some basil pesto on the top to serve (mmmm), and listened to a lot of Sharon Jones who is a totally amazing soul singer and puts you in such a great mood!
I finally had some success with Gocco prints (well I am very pleased with them), I have had a few failed attempts with screens not fully exposing my designs, and was a little frustrated. I have only had my Gocco for a little while and now I am on track and very excited about the process and possibilities! I will share them sometime soon I promise.
Along with doing some printing I had a bit of a go at painting with gouache, I have never worked with it before and rather liked it. My painting skills aren't great at all and I didn't do anything complicated but I wanted something bold and graphic. Anyway it was just relaxing to sit and be absorbed working on it.
