My art work (School gallery night) Lino printing

Hey There!

Hey there my friends, today i will be showing you my ”Lino printing” that was put up in my school art gallery as well as for tonights gallery ”exhibition”. Term 1 and 2 in art this year, along with a petri dish full of decorative items that described us, we did a painting with symbols and pictures that are memorable as well as representing an element in us. But, my favourite piece out of the three is totally this. I really just love the black sleek oil printed onto this canvas? Paper. Just the effect is so nice! This was my first time sing carving tools as well as ”Lino” so i did make a few jagged mistakes in my artwork. But, lucky for me there is quite a bit of texturing so it really isn’t that noticeable. 🙂 And i am proud to say that all the white space within the art (well, obviously is carved but) I was the student to have carved the most ”Lino”, (I even had to take it home the night before it was due because I hadn’t finished yet!).

Anyway, the picture below tells the story of me at the beach posing for the camera. Now, this memory is important to me because i hadn’t been to the beach for probably 2-3 years before with my mum. I carved birds (they’re meant to be seagulls), a boat which I saw multiple of on the horizon, a palm tree (again there was multiple but i just carved one), I then carved the waves/ ocean, the sand, a camera because, hello photography is a must on the beach and a hibiscuss (which is a type of flower) and to be honest i don’t have much of an idea why i carved this, it just needed something else and I guess i thought ”why not a flower?”.

Now, I thought I would share with you my friends ”Lino” as well as my favourite piece. Just saying though, I don’t know if i have permission to do this but both girls I’m sure was be very happy for me to post about their work.

First, my friends ”Lino” Obviously I won’t share her full name but, her first name is Maddy (Madison). Again, the story behind her ”Lino” is so meaningful and personal to her, so I defiantly won’t share the true meaning behind it but, I guess an overall idea is Sadness and Misery.

Now this next one (along with my friends ”Lino”) is my favourite! I don’t know how to pronounce her name but honestly this piece though! A-MAZ-ING! The detail leaves me is aw… Sadly, I don’t know the meaning towards hers but I think it’s possibly about moving to Australia.

So that pretty much wraps up this blog post. It’s a record for me, I’ve been typing for 20-25 minutes 🙂 Though, I’ve really enjoyed blogging this post as it is something I was looking forward too! If i don’t have permission to posting the other prints i will remove both pictures off my blog.  If you have any other blog post recommendations, i would love to hear them.

I’m thinking about blogging my everyday makeup routine and describing what each product does for me. Let me know through any media sites if you think its a good idea ❤

Don’t be afraid to ask questions in the comments!
