Monoprints VA 12
Monoprint: A monoprint is often thought of as a halfway stage between painting and printmaking. The process is simple: The artist paints, rubs, or wipes the design directly onto a plate, using a fairly slow drying paint or ink. The fleeting image must be printed before the ink dries. Printing may be done by press or by hand. Monoprint is a term used to refer to any print made in one version and incapable of being repeated. The process of monoprinting allows the artist an unusual freedom and spontaneity. Source: Original Print Gallery, Dublin, Ireland
Try landscapes, but make them sophisticated.
Try some abstract prints.
And try some prints that cover the entire surface with ink/paint. Use tools (other than just paint brushes) to make marks. Hang or tape them up to dry. Always put your initials on the back.
