On Saturday I went to White House Arts in Cambridge, http://www.whitehousearts.co.uk/ where various art and craft courses take place. My course was monoprinting with Valerie Armstrong. It was a fun day using Caligo inks, trying out different techniques such as transfer drawing, negative images, painterly prints and using masks and textures. Here are some of the results of a great day playing with colours and effects.
and more, smaller birds using paper stencils.
I used stencils (just rectangles cut from paper) to create some monoprints loosely based on buildings.
I like the effect of layering different colours and textures - this one used some fine, lacy fabric, paper and overprinting - good fun! Another busy day printing. I should also mention the delicious soup made by Caroline. We sat out in her garden by the river in the sun having lunch; very pleasant.
