Lesson Six - Experimental Monoprints

Goal:  Create 3 or more small pieces, done over the week to demonstrate processes.
Bring three of your best prints for this last class.

I'd like you to work on a small series of paintings where you choose
at least three experimental processes in each of the works.
Since it's a series, try to "link" the paintings in some way...
color palette, category of imagery, design (use of space), style of approach,
or process.
Try to use a mix of the things you learned in class for example:

  • Multicolor wash, saran wrap, printed organic design 
  • Wax resist, color wash, salt-stenciled imagery
  • Monoprint, stencil-color wash, ink
  • Expressive painting with splashing/splattering/ink
  • Masking-Expressive background, saran wrap, detailed image
