Heavy wind and rain here at my studio. Click below and enjoy a minute of “rain in the drain”
Flow is important to me when I making monoprints. Flow is:
- beyond though control
- usually allows for results that exceed thought
I have discovered that gelatin printing monotypes on fabric has a very different flow for me as compared to gel printing on paper. I have noticed:
- transfer of ink is different
- hand pressure is different
- brayer care is different
- potential marks are different
- impressions are different
- time management is different
As I walked through the rain this morning, I was very aware that the street was the same but different. It was covered with a thin sheet of ice and that required:
- patience and
- adjustment of expectations.
I think that when I apply those attitudes to making monoprints, then I have more success. What do you think?
