Started by inking up the plate with the Lino cut ink. Continue reading “Project 5.1: Monoprint”
Despite my earlier post‘s statement that I wouldn’t bother, I decided to try to elicit some feedback on the print from the OCA forum here: https://discuss.oca-student.com/t/foundation-drawing-abstract-monotype-on-the-theme-of-balance/5846 Continue reading “Project 5.1: Testing the leaf print…” →
My eyes went first to the central block of monoprint, then wandered up to the attached watch and white sections above. No thoughts on meaning at this point. Subject might be a city scape, in which case the watch would be a clock.
