A couple of weeks ago I was cleaning out my room in my parents house and found my old set of watercolour paints. The other day I tested them out and it brought me back to when I used them in high school. I forgot how lovely and easy breezy it is to lay down a wash of colour. I enjoy the transparency of watercolour and how it still manages to be vibrant. I dug out some unused coasters and blind printed some Bodoni characters shortly after the paint was applied. These remind me of children's alphabet blocks. I might incorporate these into the letterpress workshop or make a series out of them. Oh, the possibilities!
