And now for something completely different! I was fortunate to get an 8x10" gel plate for my birthday and have been inspired to have a go at landscapes. Especially landscapes with lots of clouds which are a particular interest.
I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish acrylic paint as it dries quickly, but also added a few drops of the retarder at times if it was drying a little too quickly.
My first go was inspired by a trip to Robin Hood's Bay, N. Yorkshire on a blustery October day when the tide was out. I love the dull bleakness of the coast in winter.
In my head monoprinting is going to help me loosen up my art. In reality I still tinkered around with sponges and cut up credit cards for a few finer details. It's a work in progress!
If any of you have tips for monoprinting landscapes I'd really welcome them. I'm mostly making it up as I go along with a bit of YouTube searching.
Thank you for stopping by xx
