House Finch Nest...Monotype Demo


Here are a couple of the demo prints I did for today's Monotype workshop. The top image was the first print to which I added pastel. The bottom image was the second print or 'ghost'. It was much softer than the first one and I chose to leave it in black and white. It was a fun day and everyone did some really nice work. We all learned and experimented with both black ink and color paint. We all enjoyed that moment of truth when the print was pulled! It is addicting! I did several more prints with the leftover ink after everyone left! I am looking forward to another group tomorrow to come play with printmaking and pastels! Thanks to my group today! It was a pleasure to meet new faces and welcome back my regulars!

I am fascinated by Monoprints but have never tried one. This looks great just as the print and fabulous with the color added!
