Introduction to Print after India

After visiting Rajasthan we were introduced to cholograph printing which is where you cut into a thick piece of card and peel away the layers to create different textures when you print. For my Rajasthan body of work I decided to use print as it is very popular in India especially within the cloth trade. I used cholograph to layer two prints on top of each other. One being a bold pattern in colour and the other being a lady in traditional Indian wear which as printed in Black. Before choosing this combination  I experimented with the ladys print on different textures and with different colours to see which worked best. In the end I think the black print worked best as it showed the most detail in the print and also would show up best on the colourful backgrounds.
