….Because Northumberland isn’t always sunny. Sometimes a greyscale colour scheme can be even more gorgeous than bright blue skies. A monochrome palette highlights the imagery and the contrast is so much nicer.
Wow. I can’t believe how soon Alnmouth Arts Festival is. There’s still so much to organise and so many paintings to do! Here’s a painting I finished today and it’s also where I’ll be based at the festival. If you’re around, please come and find me at The Ferryman’s Hut!
I’ve been madly painting for The Alnmouth Arts Festival in June. If you’re around, please come and see more of my work! Here’s a sneaky peak to tempt you….
Monoprinting can be a very quick but effective way of creating imagery. Draw a rough image on some paper or use a photograph (photocopied is best). If there’s writing it’ll be reversed on the final image so bear that in mind! Roller some ink onto a surface, then place the image, face up, onto the inked area LIGHTLY! Now you can draw over the image and where the pressure is applied, the lines will print in ink. I’ve experimented quickly with a few colours. My favourite is the cow! Which is yours?
