It’s that time of year again when The Royal Academy has begun to accept submissions for its summer show.
I submitted two paintings last year, two of my 5″ x 7″ oil landscapes, which were both shortlisted and made it all the way to the hanging day. Sadly, neither of them made it up on the wall of the Royal Academy.
So this year see’s another chance coming my way to exhibit at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition.
This time, however, I have decided to dust off my print makers hat. This year I will be submitting this Risograph print, called ‘Monument”.
It’s an A3, three colour print on 200gms recycled paper. And I’m quite please with the results. This is my first attempt at making a Risograph but, all things considered, I think it turned out quite well.
I have screen printed numerous pieces of work in the past and the method of setting up the files for this was much the same. I had to send this away to be printed on a Risograph machine but found a great company called Risotto Studio in Glasgow who, let’s face it, did all the hands on work for me.
This is an edition of 50.
