Yeh Yeh #1 ..... hand coloured silver gelatin print by 

Another hand coloured photo from the vaults. This is a flatbed scan of a 10×8 inch photograph that has been printed with two negs just out of register. Then it was doused with various inks and food colourings and scratched and abused with a kitchen scourer before being splattered with gold paint. Tthe Yeh Yeh was burnt in to the surface of the print with a soldering iron….then it’s been allowed to mature for about twenty years before scanning and being uploaded here. Kept it’s colours pretty well I think …. there has been no photoshop work at all done to this… its straight from the scanner.

    I am absolutely loving this! Juilee, without sounding all pretentious and “Art Schooly”, I so admire the work and thinking that goes into your images. Food dye, kitchen scourers???
    No problem, bring it on!

  • hey thanks Roy…. I do lots of dark stuff too but I love doing mad stuff like this…. it’s just fun and art needs to be fun to sometimes……. and kitchen scourers never did frighten me to be honest…. just another mark making thingoh….. and food colouring comes in the wildest colours……rather paint with it than eat it and all…..:)
