Painted styrofoam plate print

Posted: April 6, 2012 in New Mixed Media art

To me, styrofoam plate prints look similar to graffiti when printed in black. So I decided to paint some of the prints today from new plates I carved recently. I used mostly purple, yellow, gold and fushia for this series of work. I like to restrict my color palatte on small pieces and block in the colors. These are done on 5×7 sized canvas boards. The spontaneity of printing plates inspires me to be more accepting of what happens; I sure can’t control what a plate prints like. Most of all, it’s a fun process.
