I have a thing for neutrals. I’m the kind of chick that when it’s all grey and cloudy outside, I just stand and stare at all the shades of neutral painted everywhere. I love it, it’s incredible. There are endless variations. I think you notice it more when there seems to be an absence of color, the tiny shifts stand out like a waving flag.
This week’s print is a little bit of an experiment in layering more then one pattern on top of each other. It went kind of argyle on me but I like it, I think it has a unique quality to it. I do love me some good layered printing.
Here are the details on this square:
Square base: commercial medium grey cotton fabric
Ink: Simply Screen Paint
Printing tool: Sponge Brushes
Screen type: Thermofax screens
Maybe this color palette is a reflection of Michigan’s winter. This is the month when we are smack in the middle of it and you can start to feel the weight of it. It’s inevitable that they grey will work it’s way into things. Do you ever do that? Does your work ever follow suit with the seasons?
