{Fine Art} Cyanotypes

Cyanotype Process

This year I am participating in Somerville Open Studios. I am extremely excited for this awesome opportunity yet extremely terrified! I know it will be fun but I've never really put myself out there as an artist. But thanks to my good photographer friend, Lexi, I am following in her "why not" attitude and living life to the fullest and taking chances. Just like Celine Dion said ;)

Anyway, this photo shows some of my current work, cyanotypes stretched on canvas. The process is pretty cool. I start with a digital image, which I make into a negative in Photoshop. From there I print it out on acetate to make almost a large-format negative. Then I paint the cyanotype solution on canvas and let the sun develop it. Then it just washes out. But be sure NOT to get it all over the bathtub. Oooops!

So if you're interested in seeing more of my work (there will be drawings, paintings, and of course, photographs), then come to Somerville Open Studios and support local artists. May 5+6 from noon-6.
