Elaine's latest letters

I am still excited by the process I set myself of working through my collection of ‘interesting ideas’. Keeping to my restricted palette of silver and red on black paper certainly stretches the mind.

Hand-cut rubber stamp, printed with a silver stamp pad. Red gouache in a double ruling pen. 

Week 10.            G - EW
Red ink and silver gouache in a double ruling pen. 

Week 11.             S-  EW
Japanese chopstick using red ink and silver gouache.

Week 12.             X-  EW
Jo Sonja iridescent red acrylic paint, written directly from the tube.

Week 13. N- EW
Letter cut out from ‘Brayer’ Paper (tissue papers coated with gesso and acrylic paints using a brayer). Black machine stitching.

I love the fact that you have set yourself limits, love the colour combination - looking good!

Hi Elaine

As ever - so much movement and life in the letters! I think I must start hunting for a double ruling pen - I really like the way you've created these using one.
