FOUNDATIONS

Designs by Leyla O'Lenic

PURITY

Chose a virtue or vow and explore how to express it through color, composition, and shape

Materials: Pigment on 70x40" canvas

PRINT MAKING: ETCHING TECHNIQUE

I combined my etching skills and fabric skills to create a collection of botanical prints. In the background, I imprinted a piece of fabric on the plate. I then covered the plate in hard ground, so I could draw my botanical design on top of the textural background. With oil paint, I created two colors and then combined the two to have a cohesive third print.   

Materials: Hard ground and soft ground etching on copper plate, printed on Japanese paper

These basic skills have helped me to better understand color and towards fabric mediums.  

Materials: Acrylic paint on 9”x12” multimedia paper
