Catching Raindrops

monotype, watercolor 4"x4"

This is my nibblefest entry for this month: Raining Cats & Dogs. NFAC on ebay. I used watercolor crayons. I may use regular watercolor on the ghost just to see the difference. WC crayons can go on pretty thick. I'd like to try glazing next.

Nude Moon & Star

5x6 linocut, b&w, rev faux-print

Loki's Signature Style

Here's a framed monoprint signed by Loki. He got into a bag of frames and matts before I could use them and I was complaining to everyone about it. My nephew had the brilliant idea of using them for pictures of Loki. Terrific! So here's Loki and his handiwork, pre-chewed by the model. How many artists can say that?

Monoprint Ghost with Watercolor

Ok, it's an experiment. Not bad for a first pass. The ghost was very light so it lent itself to watercolor. I only had one yellow -- gamboge -- so there were only so many greens to get from that. I like the way the face detail came out. It looks like our 1972 selves at Blackburn College. 8-]
