Gesa this is really lively - I think your 'not-printmaking' really works well.
I like this a lot :>D you should do more experiments around this :>)I was taught that monoprinting is a print like this that contains a reproducible element like your lino but is then worked into as you have, making it uniquea monotype is a totally one off, not reproducible at all
Thanks, Cath - hm, yes, the CPs work quite well against the solidity of the ink, don't they?Thanks for the points about monotype/printmaking - I'll have another look at my books/notes, but remember the distinction as being slightly different: as in monoprints include different methods... but I'll check again. I also wondered where that would leave, e.g., my avodcado leave stencilling: each mask can only be used for one print, but yet, I can make as many repros for the masks as I want... hm... Oh, and that hasn't even taken me to editioning/editing prints... :)
Gesa, very nicely done! From what I hear, this mix is becoming more and more common (a printed part and a custom part) but I have yet to learn a name for it!
I love you taking this beyond a lino print, somewhere else. I've tried doing rubbings of the lino blocks, and cutting these out to make collages with. Great fun.
The more I look at this the more I see the possibilities for experimenting with colours and ideas for blocks without the tedium of cutting each time.
I'm never clear about the monoprint/monotype definitions, but whatever this is it is wonderful. The freedom of the marks over the more 'severe' linocut is especially good.
Hello, and thank you Ian! I had a look at your Etsy and I like your monotype experiments a lot. I haven't done such accidental experimentation with printing so much before but quite a few of my mixed media pieces developed in similar way. And it's such a good way of working for me. I've only now begun to look at your blog - will do that with more time.
