Amongst other things this week, I have been mono-printing onto paper. It seems to work better than printing onto fabric – I need more paint for the fabric, so it is thicker and less defined, whereas the paper seems to pick up the subtleties better. Or maybe it could just be the type of paint I’m using.

To complete the pictures, I painted the backgrounds today. Painting totally transformed them and as I had used acrylic paint for printing with, it meant I could add more paint without the print running. I’m satisfied with these three and they have been deemed completed. As I am enjoying working on paper for a change, there are a number of other ones in progress, in progress being a euphemism for I don’t like them yet, so I’ll keep going!
