"Spring I", 1/50, print by Amanda Watson-Will

"Spring I", 1/50, by Amanda Watson-Will

Today I want to share my joy over this beautiful print that reached me the other day. It was made by Amanda Watson-Will, an Australian artist from Brisbane.  I first found her blog when I was doing an internet search on printing. – I think, but don’t remember quite clearly. In any case, what caught my initial interest was that she was experimenting with printing with a pasta machine. – That was so funny and original. And quite representative for her blog and her writing. I like that she is experimenting a lot with techniques, materials, and media, and shares it all with us, and doesn’t spare out the drawbacks. But mostly from her experiments result such amazing prints and books. – I much admire her work. But before I sound like a complete groupie, rather check out her blog for yourself, if you don’t already know it.

Thank you very much, Amanda, for this beautiful piece of art!

    It’s beautiful, Hilke! Amanda really gets that jacaranda colour, doesn’t she?

    I saw that your print reached you, too :-) It *is* beautiful, and I admire how she managed to capture the abstract essence of spring by showing quite concrete images of children, flowers and a trees.
