Gerhard Richter experiments

For Project 2.2 Random Abstract Prints To be more fully written up.

Possibilities for Printmaking:

  • Use Akua water-based relief inks and impasto medium applied with palette knife, then selectively scraped. This replicates the appearance of squeejee and acrylic paint.
  • Drip blending medium and/or liquid ink pigment and use gravity to make further marks
  • Hand print on thin Japanese paper to retain delicate markings and as much as possible of the impasto
