Regretfully because of ill health I was unable to attend the last day of the workshop with Glen Skien. So I have this set of unfinished prints. We started by making randoms marks with teabags or paint, having previously chosen a motif that we intended to work with. I chose fish, schnapper in particular (they ended up looking like whales!) Then we added other elements, pencil, ink, paint. We trialled chine-collo, collage and various inking techniques. Several days later when I had recovered I continued, I had problems with torn images, poor inking, and layouts that I wanted to improve. In the end I decided to leave as unfinished. I will try and find out what happened on the day I missed.
