Linda Beeman, your work is exquisite. You give a person something to
strive toward! Makes me want to do a series on Willapa Bay, up north
behind my house. Hoping to get some printing done this week and next,
myself. I have been doing so much free lance writing (got promoted to
the full magazine) I have had little time. Today I will work while
someone cleans, whew! For the year of the rabbit folks, mine is drawn
on the plate, will start today, hopefully.

Subject: Mystique Series #11 : printing steps 17~19 ... she's done!
Posted by: Dave Bull

So let's finish this off today - the collectors are waiting!

I asked in yesterday's post about what people thought might be coming up, but I doubt that anybody would have guessed this one (nor would I have). Seki-san depicted our hero in traditional fashion, with a kind of 'skirt' wrapped over his kimono. (I have no idea if this is an item of traditional fisherman's clothing, or is something related to his adventures below the sea; I'll have to ask her when I see her tomorrow for our 'signing session'):

Back when I first introduced Seki-san here, I mentioned that she has studied ukiyo-e prints and considers her work to be in the same tradition. Well, with the addition of this next impression, you can certainly see where she is 'coming from'!

I wanted to do a white line version of this motif. in this version i focused on geometry. i used the golden mean for the overall dimensions and in the placement of the moon. i also made a vesica pisces and used that to construct a template for the waves. there is more but it is probably boring so i will leave it at that. water based media makes me crazy! the things i love about it are totally unique to it and the things i hate about it are as well. i had some stretch and registration issues as usual but the overall look of the print is pleasing to me after my initial horror wore off but i will probably try it in oil based inks as well.
