Back to my old tricks again

And it’s a good thing!

Last year I spent a considerable amount of time playing around with Monotype printing. I’m pretty sure I came up with some really nice work but wasn’t really satisfied. This year I’ve meandered around with portraits and media and have always been hoping to return to the monotypes. So, finally I’m back.

Let’s see what comes of it…

I’ve been using block ink which seems to lend itself to the way I work. I tried a different brand today, which is a gorgeous ink but I found it wasn’t suitable for working on the Magnani incisioni paper that I love. So I think I will go back to the old stuff. It was worth the experiment though. I will continue to play around with what I have here- add some colour, cut them up. How fun. Can’t wait. I love being back to my old tricks!

It’s short and sweet this week – many family things to do. Thanks for taking a look. JP
