    These are great mono’s. Please tell me exactly how you are doing them. Are you drawing on the back of the paper on an inked surface?

  • Yes, Jai, the ‘inked’ surface is oil stick on paper, and then draw on paper on top of the oiled surface with various implements resulting in a monotype print on the back. hope that explains it ‘exactly’?

    Thanks donna, thats interesting, using oil stick, less smudging I imagine, will have to try that. Have done the same but with oil paint or printing ink, can be quite crude, love the results you have got here, very delicate.

  • the oil is quite sticky…i also put a paper window around the ‘plate’…

    Good idea, simple solutions like this make the difference. Why didn’t I think of that, I always work so messy. Thanks for the tips.

    i see faces in it, profiles….maybe it’s because I’ve been doing mainly figures lately and I’m always looking for a face in the paint :)

  • oh i see them now. my teacher michael baartz thinks i may always be a figurative artist although i really hope i can move more towards abstraction. thanks Adam
