A shoe print! Not a bird! It’s my latest print, and it’s four whopping colors. This image was the inspiration for my latest print and I wanted to capture the vibrancy of the colors but in a flat, four-color print. My secret? Gold ink. I mixed in a little gold with the yellow and the green to make them shimmer, but just slightly – just enough that the colors pick up the light the same ways patent or metallic leather does.
So, starting with the original photograph as a guide, I sketched the outline of the shoes:
Then I created a full-color image using watercolor pencils:
Working with the color illustration, I inked a separate transparency for each color:
Afterward, I went to the studio (you’ll have to believe me here, since I didn’t photograph it), shot my screens using the transparencies, and inked each layer until I had this finished print:
I guess I should put it in the etsy shop. Soon.
