Monotype Workshop

This should have come after the next section- oh well.
So this shows Ingrid working on two prints and then pulling the prints.

Two of my finished prints in our show and share.

Monotype Print Workshop

Ingrid Albrecht in the gallery in Ravenswood. The next photos show her process of making a monotype print. The paper is already laying down on the paint and she's manipulating it with a soft brush and water to make sure the paper is in the paint. Also it helps wet the paper so the colors bleed and do wonderful things on the plexiglass plate underneath. And you see the water sprayer she uses in the second photo also used to spray on the paper.

After our Collage class yesterday, I just had to create something new! This was also after seeing Laura's demo at her house show last sunday.
I have so much to do- an art show in Tinley Park this Sunday, getting ready for my Calligraphy class on Monday, AND my next Coptic book class the next Monday- but after digging around in my papers they seemed to be calling to me!

New paintings

New paintings started in our summer sketch class. I'll finish them in the fall class. We work plein aire style, which is painting on site. This was from the Morton Arboretum.

Collage cards

Fun collage cards we made at April's.

Coptic Book Making

Photos of the Coptic Book that we made in a workshop in June and I'm repeating this month at the Center in a larger size. The first of two classes is on Sept. 20 on Monday afternoon.
