SKETCHBOOK

I use my sketchbooks, both analogue and digital, as a means of gathering together stimulus that goes on to influence my work.  This page gathers the most recent posts together for reference.

You can visit my sketchbook blog at jamesbywood.tumblr.com for an archive of all my posts.

      One of the joys of printmaking for me is choosing which colours to use to complete a print. The process of screen printing means that inks can be placed over each other to create a third colour. This ‘overprinting’ is tough to get right hence I like to test things before I go further. I really like the Terre Verte, Sap Green and Process Black combo and will probably use these to complete this print of #whernside, one of the Yorkshire #3peaks.

      I’ve been playing with some halftone ideas for a new set of screenprints of the #3peaks. Bit of Whernside and Ribblehead in this one.
