Playing With Yupo and Ink
These are the two pieces I created while 'playing' at Joannies last week, a warm up exercise before moving onto more developed pieces enabling the child within to escape and keep things loose.
The top piece was created by sloshing inks onto yupo before applying another sheet of yupo over the top and pressing down to produce a print. The suction between the two sheets left very detailed patterns as I peeled the top sheet back, I then went in with more ink once dry to develop some of the shapes.
The poor girl with the deformed bottom in the second piece was created in the same way but with more development in the later stage.
I found this process very freeing, it was fun developing something from a few shapes with no plan of the final outcome.
