Artist Research – Stef MitchellPosted: April 14, 2015
Another artist that I found while researching was Stef Mitchell who creates really beautiful monopolists using nature and flowers. I really love the look of his work, how the details and texture of each plant he’s used is perfectly printed onto paper. I was really taken with these works and wanted to try this out for myself.
I selected two different parts of plants from my garden and using black oil paint, rollered the ink onto the plants and sandwiched them between two sheets of cartridge paper with a heavy boom on top. From each inking of the flower I took two prints. The black ink reat makes the detail of each print stand out, each is a beautifully intricate print of nature.
