Gyotaku print on rice paper with watercolour
This is the completed print of the smelt that I started on its road to completion in the last post.
I really have to get my thumb out and start getting things in gear for the end of this gyotaku project. Part of me is a perfectionist. I complete a piece, put it in a frame, then do another piece that I like more. And so the cycle goes, as if I'm always trying for something better.
My to do list includes:
- obtaining exhibition space
- media releases
- promoting the workshop
- completion (perhaps 3 more) and framing of gyotaku pieces
- completing gyotaku book
- thank you prints for those who helped me find fish
- hopefully create a virtual exhibition
Each of these tasks is worthy of a blog post in its own right.
I've set myself a deadline of December 31st to have all these tasks complete, so blog posts may be a bit scarce over the next month. Oh yeah, Christmas is in there somewhere too isn't it?
