A recent critique with my colleagues at Momento Collective has been so useful in re examining my art practice- posing questions such as my use of colour- or lack of use of colour.
A couple of years ago I made a time lapse video following the tide patterns in a small cove over several days. I filmed during the night which created quite dark uneventful periods in the footage. When I started editing the video I experimented with manipulating the colour to accentuate the movement and time phases and to liven up the night time sequences. This produced a visually stimulating effect and dare I say beautiful imagery.
So with reference to this I have now contemplated playing with colour in my mono print work. This is early days and I hope may lead to using more colour in the studio when I make prints. This is a quick experiment with one print below, what do you think?
I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
and below is the original print:
