Hey all, This is my first time making a real monotype, tell me what you think guys. The way I got to do monotypes was my friend Ali, he has a print making class and calls me to learn the ways of monotype. Im very fasinated in how the process of making a monotype work. First you have to wet the paper that you are going to transfer it too. Then you get out a piexel glass, after that you bring out the ink and rub it on the glass with a roller. After you are done with your drawing or illustration you pass it to the press or if you dont have a press you do it the old fasion way, you get a cooking roller and roll the paper onto the image and hope it comes out alright. After all those steps you get these results. The blues series, im trying to make a series of blues musicians just for fun and practice. Enjoy my fellow artist.


Hows it going everyone, I got new goodys to show you all. The indian chief was to show you steps in how I paint with acylic and tar, It sucks that I don't have too many steps to show you but I have the ending of a acrylic painting and the begining of a tar painting, you see the 1st image is very saturated color and not thinking about high lights and value changing but just throwing the value of colors and having fun with it. But when I but the tar on top it keys down the color and gives it a one tone value. After the tar you go back and bring out the highlights and leave your darkest darks. Well theres more to come. Peace
