Monoprinting Goodness

No. II Monoprint detail
Those who know me, know well that I have a sort of artist attention disorder...I always want to try everything, and wanting and acting on these impulses are two completely different monsters. I stumble across Gelli Arts Printing plates while browsing through my favourite online art store, Currys.

Here is my quick workspace set up...I literally ripped it out of the box and ran for my paints to get going...

A monoprint is essentially an original print that cannot be reproduced. I could arrange and align everything the same, and with the spontaneous nature of the paint, I would still have a different print. I still have lots to learn about the process and I can't wait to see what I can create as I get better! It's amazing how you can achieve so much detail, and so much ambiguity all at once. ... and the results:

No. I Original Acrylic Monoprint Painting

No. II Original Acrylic Monoprint Painting
Each has 4-6 layers of acrylic paint, creating a lot of depth and lightness within the piece. I cannnot wait to make more, it was just so much fun! Both of these are available in the online shop! Happy creating!
