FOCUS ON: ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Posted by John Reynolds on

I have produced a range of Alice In Wonderland screenprints, from the brilliant original drawings by John Tenniel.

I have printed three:
Alice defending her self from a pack of cards, in blue.
The White Rabbit looking at his watch, in yellow.
The Mad Hatter, singing a song, in red.

 

I have used a new technique for colouring the black-and-white drawings:I have printed the main subject of each image in black, spot-coloured them and printed the background in the same colour ink. The intended effect is to emphasise the character but tie them firmly into the overall picture.

The prints are on white, mould-made 300gsm Somerset paper, milled in the St Cuthbert Mill in the West Country.

Each one is 38cms deep x 28cms wide.
