Kerry Blue Terrier monotype with watercolour. Can't use water-colour on this kind of paper. But it's great for monotype line alone. A fine kind of ingres paper with a really nice bit of texture to enhance the fuzziness of the printed line.
Stage 2 of the bearded man monotype. I have added acrylic paint. Next I'm going to sand the acrylic with fine sandpaper (wish me luck), add dilute glazing layer(s) and then embellish it with colour pencil.
from a little girl in a vintage cabinet card portrait wearing a ridiculous amount of frills and lace. monotype on paper. With all of this series, I was largely using a continuous line drawing technique to avoid fussiness in my line and to get a rhythm going.
