portrait no. 82- Rosie Scribblah printmaker

Rose Davies, pencil, 2 1/8" x 3 1/8"

My hope in choosing this image of Rose is to capture the essence of the printmaker who is Rosie Scribblah, hard at work in her studio; the only lighting on her face a reflection off of her work bench….  I can smell the inks & hear the brayer rolling rhythmically across the tacky plate… do you work in solitude Rosie? Late nights with the rock music just loud enough to motivate but not wake the neighbours?

Rosie Scribblah is, in my mind, an artist extraordinaire. I have a new-found appreciation for printmakers after a few attempts at making woodcuts last year.  You can see her amazing prints and drawings on her blog, Rosie Scribblah, or visit her public Facebook fan page.

This is portrait number 82 of 100.

As a reminder, the draw for the 100th portrait, which will be an acrylic painting, takes place on Feb. 15th.  Check the link: https://artboy68project.wordpress.com/for-number-100-acrylic-painting-enter-here/ . Enter even if I’ve drawn you before!
