Painted in screen printing inks over a wood panel, this illustration shows a fairy riding a goose.
In this illustration,¬†screen printing ink was used to paint a fairy riding a goose onto a wooden panel. After lightly sanding and using pencil to sketch, the ink painted on easily with a brush. The ink flowed smoothly, and the transparent base worked well to create transparency in the fairy wings. For a simple illustration and more complicated ones too, ink on wood in terms of application, is simple and yields attractive results. In this piece, the panel seemed to indicate the drawing to me. The grain¬†on the panel helped determine the composition.   -Beth
