I’ve really been getting into monoprints lately. I learned a fun technique from Karlyn Holman at a class I took in April and have been playing with the concept ever since.
You start with pasting colored tissue on Masa paper, then you do your monoprint on top of that, and after it dries you can go back in… or not… with watercolor.
There’s a lot of chance involved in the process because you can’t really be sure where the papers will end up or what kinds of smudges you’ll get in the print process. But I believe there is a lot of beauty to be found in imperfection.
Above, Blue Spring, is a favorite.
