The cat has made his appearance in my printing experiments. He’s a good subject: solid, with lots of textural qualities to explore in printmaking. And he spends an inordinate amount of time sitting on my desk on top of any artwork that might be on it.
I painted him onto my gelli plate and did a couple of pulls off it.
Then I added varying amounts of line work on both pieces, with the first pull, Cat1, having more definition and the second pull or ghost, Cat2, being more loosely done.
Here they are, the two cats. What’s hard to see here is how thick and textural the paint is on the prints. I love that bit of the process.
