Make Monotypes 3

The monotype class has come to an end.The first weeks I experimented a lot. The last week I was too busy making patterns and opning an account on Spoonflower, so I didn't had time anymore. (You can still vote for my rhinoceros pattern here)

Above and below are two prints with the same stencils. I experimented coloring the stencils with a brush and a brayer. One shape print and a detail (ghost) print. I like the effcect of both. They have their own quality. I was surprised by the detail print.

And here an experiment with fruit. I made lots of them, this one I liked the most:

Another detail (ghost) print of a cat and several circles. I like these textures.
You can't get it like this only on the computer.

During the course I made a lot of monoprint Photoshop brushes and patterns. I scanned backgrounds and changed them into pencils. i'm happy with that, so I can use them to make my work more lifely.

It was fun to experiment and to play. This morning I cleaned up my workspace, because after six weeks of printing it was quite a mess :-)
