So I’ve been debating with myself on adding color to the background of my prints or leave them as is? I’ve done this before with my “Quiet Agony” drawing, where I did a hand drawn pointillism piece, scanned it into Photoshop and then added a color to the white space in the background. So I’m testing this out on my current piece “Unfold”. My conundrum is that I kinda like them both and I kinda don’t like them. I think the stark white of the fine art paper I print on is a bit bothersome to me. My originals are drawn out on natural white drawing paper that doesn’t over power the ink, giving the original a softness that I find appealing. I could use a natural white fine art paper to do my prints on but unfortunately, the ink would come out a bit muted and then factor in the archival spray I add to my prints, that will lead to further muting making the print look dull. So I use a bright white yet it’s just irking me. So I’ve added in some color in the white space with PS. I don’t want to mess around with the drawing too much digitally. I want to keep the work close the original but I’m just a bit conflicted on keeping the background plain or adding some color. As a plus for using color, I like the idea of using it as a way to differentiate my prints from my drawings. What do you think? Colored backgrounds or no colored backgrounds?
