A Monotype How To

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Late last year I felt I needed a change to my daily routine. I spend as many days in the studio each week as I can, painting. But I wanted to create a different approach to my art his year.

I’ve been creating monotypes/monoprints for several years now as a hobby, I guess. Whenever I’m not painting and I feel I need a break, I’ll produce a print or two.

But for this year, at least for the first half of the year, the emphasis will be on printmaking, particularly monoprinting. I want to see how far I can take it. I want to create mixed media art with prints, paint and pencils….just to see what happens.

The image above is a recent small print. It’s 6×6″. I did this print specifically for the video below simply to show process. It’s a quick, three-minute video Have a look. Hope you enjoy.

Bob's Workshop

Spent the weekend teaching over 20 members of the Belleville Art Association how I paint what I paint…like this one:

Someday We'll Be Together
We used a variety of acrylic mediums and built paintings from loose colour applications to final, resolved, creative images with the addition of graphite, charcoal, collage, stamps, stencils and photo transfers.

Thanks to all who attended. It was great fun
