I like the elegant simplicity of this
oh yes as hard as it is for me to find words these days I have to say I love this
again, love the space around it…touches of figurative in this that give it another dimension for me….blah, blah…I love it is what I’m trying to say :))
..how is it figurative? trying to understand, i value your opinion..thanks again
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
