Trying something new!

The Swing
Print  7x5"

I've stepped outside the comfort zone of using a paint and brush and been attempting to print from watercolour paintings. This is from a 10x12" work though I printed it onto card first and intensified the colour with paint and pencil. Then it was reprinted in a size to fit the square frame I'd bought in a bargain basement.

Gone Fishing  6x6"

The Swing

I'm feeling very clever, having actually managed to produce something that looks OK and it's set my mind to thinking about producing greeting cards from some images. 

But choice of support is important, floppy cards would be no good,  and, as I'm not the tidiest person and known for covering everything in paint, I'm wondering about employing a professional printer.

Then, if I want to do this properly, there's the problem of marketing, though there are small gift shops in the local area I could approach. Be a bit brazen.

So lots to ponder before I even think about this new venture!
