Addendum to Working Methods - Part 1

Based on some really useful feedback from printmaker Aine Scannell I will endeavour to address her comments in the near future. I am very aware that I should be documenting the progress of a print whilst in the studio but keep forgetting to bring a camera every time I go in to the studio.

This is partly down to the afore mentioned attention span of a gnat and partly because at present I do not have my own camera, relying instead on the good will of my husband to lend me his. He gets a bit shirty when his camera stays too long in my work bag or the memory card fills up with my stuff!! Which I guess is understandable.

The other comment was about being able to click on the images to get a larger view and I'm sorry ... I don't know how to do that! I'll try to work it out but input from non-technophobes would be welcome. I'm not completely technophobic but some things do get the better of me.

it's me again...... Aine. Nice to read your post explaining your situation re camera or non possession of a camera rather!!

RE images being larger when the blog visitor clicks on them . You simply make the image about 30 cm the longest side and of course do it through the "save for web" option in Photoshop . If indeed you have PS. If you don't you just make the images 72 dpi.
Apologies if I am stating the obvious. I know how tricky it can be to do the documenting the stages/process whilst one is in the throes of printmaking. It's something I got into the habit of through being a member of the

printmakers group on Flickr
and thereafter through starting my blog. I started the blog when my studio got "boxed" up while we were about to move out of London and up here to Scotland. Then 6 months later we moved here again !! Never again.
