tree & moon 1
tree & moon 2
Blue straight, red with burnt plate oil, yellow with miracle gel. Yellow repels other two, so I do the moon first, then blue, then red. On second print red was already adulterated with other colors, so it leans toward maroon. Still looks interesting. These are ATC size, currently on 5"x5.5" paper.

Ok. Another try at a portrait monoprint. This time I stippled with a small stomp. I sanded one flatter and wider to do the snakes. Interesting technique. Mindlessly dotty, so to speak. I'm sure I can get it lighter next time. This was fun.

This is a monoprint I did in class yesterday. It's from a photo from our college days -- lo those many years ago! This is my first attempt at people. Gotta work out shading. I like how the blouse turned out. Remember peasant blouses and skirts? Remember waistlines?!
I'm giving it to Bill for Valentine's Day. He won't recognize himself with all that hair.... ;-j
