Oh this is fun… after some frustrating attempts to develop the first figure drawing as a semi-abstract gel print, I realized I needed to learn more about gel plate printing and just play with it. I was also having trouble working quickly enough before the ink or paint would dry right on the gel plate. So I bought a small set of Open Acrylics, and yay! That solved the problem. So I just played all day, experimenting with textures, stencils and colors in a series of small 6×9” prints. I did them really quickly, without thinking… sometimes printing 2-3 at a time. So much fun!
