After my miniatures, I thought it was time to be more adventurous with some larger pictures. These images are 54cm by 42cm, so not huge but quiet a step up from before and do present some more interesting technical challenges. You have to be quite swift in applying the paint, so not to have problems with paint drying in the screen, and firm with the squeegee when printing not to miss areas, but it comes together after a few goes. So far I have been using two drawn images in the foreground which have blends in them though on one run it ended up looking like a single colour. These are the effects of the combining layers of paint sometimes balancing out.
I am enjoying the monoprinting side as it is very free and interesting accidents happen along the way as the paint moves on the screen. It is all a learning process at this stage particularly with the colours. In particular I’m interested in seeing how the two layers of changing colour enhance or distract from the movements already present within the drawings. See what you think.
