    I particularly like the portrait – it has a bit of a monoprint feel about it. In a very good way! πŸ™‚

    • That’s interesting point. I’ve been dabbling in some home printing. I’ve had lino waiting to be carved for some time, but I think I like a more immediate result. I do find though I’ve been regularly creating a printed ‘look’ with my painting, chalks and inking. I love drawing people in stripey tops – gives an immediate look in a few strokes and luckily, my daughter has lots of stripey tops!

        Yes, I can definitely see that…Fascinating how the crossover seems to be occurring naturally as well. I have printing on my mind too, think I might be ramping (slowly) up to it, so I will watch your developments with even more interest than usual. πŸ™‚

        • What sort of printing are you planning to do? It’s the whole word ‘planning’ I think that puts me off!

          • Rebecca said

            I was thinking initially of some very, very simple printing using a couple of polystyrene pizza bases I’ve saved from the rare occasions I’ve bought them (and about the only thing they are good for), then maybe some monoprinting. Nothing very ambitious, anyway, at this stage. How about you? The planning is a bit daunting, as is the prospect of clearing up the sticky ink afterwards! πŸ™‚

            • I did the i splots by scratching into a shiny old calendar (it was a Lowry for inspiration!). It didn’t come out very distinct though. Also had a go at monoprinting but the paint kept drying too quickly – perhaps I should have put it on thicker. I look forward to your pizza-printing (it now has a name!) and mono prints to pick up tips and possibly steal the whole process! Half my problem is I’m not very exact when it comes to craft and tend not to plan or experiment much and then just bodge it. Strange as I’m a perfectionist in some many other things

                Liking the Lowry idea, and also might have to trademark ‘pizza-printing’! I do recall that monoprinting seems to work nicely if you can use thick printer’s ink, and roll it out evenly onto a smooth glass sheet. I think maybe that kind of ink has a much longer drying time than paint, giving more (necessary) leeway for faffing about. I do love the smudgy effects of monoprinting, (as I’m also a bit of a bodger) and the fact that you can use a pencil, a finger, or anything else to make a mark. Spontaneous is fun! In related items, have you looked at Dave Whatt’s WordPress post on Decalcomania? https://davewhatt.wordpress.com/category/decalcomania/
                I think you might find that it appeals… certainly does to me. πŸ™‚

                • Yes, I have seen Dave’s, but a timely reminder for me to have a go – I’ve not done anything quite so spontaneous. I did a bit of monoprinting at college and we used oil paints I now remember. I used to have some really cheap horrible oil paints bought from the Sunday Market at Snetterton that would be perfect for this! We used metal plates, would a cheap mirror do the job? May also have to eat pizza this weekend! You are sparking so many ideas for me, thank you – Can I leave work immediately to get on with it??

                  • Rebecca said

                    YAY! Yes, down tools and off to create! (and you can tell them I said so, so there.) I reckon a mirror would be perfect – I intend to use the smooth reverse of a horrible textured glass chopping board we have. It’s useless for chopping as it blunts knives, but I think it would do perfectly for printing. I’ve never used oil paint at all (for anything), but if it’s good enough for art school printing, it sounds like it will be just the ticket. Necessity is the mother of invention… Can’t wait to see the fruits of your labours! πŸ™‚

  3. I really like this a lot!
