More Monoprinting

Acrylic Painting

Monoprinting is addictive! You never know exactly what you will get but you can control the process somewhat by having a vision of the result or striving for a particular effect. When I watch videos of people who have been doing this for some time, I noticed that they turn the art around as they work. For example in this piece you can see something different depending on which way it is turned.

By accident I discovered that if you drag the seran wrap across the surface you get what could be hanging branches. This next piece reminds me of a haunted forest. The figure happened quite by accident but looks like a caped person walking through the forest which could be enchanted or just haunted.
