I carried on with smudging the printing inks to show movement but this time on the screen, and pulling it through the screen. it makes more interesting patterns at the top. I like the effect but it needs alot of refinement so that it looks intentional instead of messy. i have started to look at the prints of Philip Taafe, his acrylics on paper, 2002. I am going to try and get a similar effect to what he achieves in these prints/ paintings.
looking at ways I can create movement in my prints, I tried to recreate the mistakes i made the day before with spilling the paint and then scraping it off, this time more directed though, to try and make it look like the motion blur from birds in flight, could use this to make striped wallpaper more interesting.
yesterday helped me to decide on my colour pallet for next couple of weeks as well, the navy, beige and gold as one, and grey/blue, bright blue, navy blue and lemon yellow as the other.

trying out colour ways and perfecting my designs.. here are some more recent samples. I am working on fabrics again because if i want to project onto my patterns I need to do it something which shows a clear picture when back projected. I did tests and cotton poplin is the one. so heres my designs on fabric.
