Monoprint, Patchwork Quilt style
This is from my second day teaching the Monoprinting Workshop that is in my home studio. We learned how to make our beautiful handmade papers into a painting. Seeing values was the most important lesson of the day. The students also learned many design tips for better paintings. My studio looked like a tornado hit it! But everyone had lots of fun, and very successful paintings.
