Going Large

Linda Duvall said “I’d love to see that work bigger” which prompted me to talk to my course tutor about how to proceed. She suggested that I could buy a roll of Wenzhou paper to work onto.  It is a Chinese made, very thin, very strong almost translucent paper.  For a large board to work on I had a huge piece of my kitchen that had to be removed to fit a new oven.  It is laminated and white which is a bonus as it creates a lovely gentle background ‘buzz’.  The paper was 69cms x 10 metres so there was a lot of paper to make mistakes!  I planned the order, colours and shapes. The print developed over five versions until I was satisfied and then added  stencils.  Having done this once I am now keen to make many more bigger prints.
