Sketchbook circle 2015

After struggling to make a start on this year’s sketchbook (blank page syndrome) I finally found inspiration while clearing up after my year 10 class. We had been monoprinting on acetate sheets and as they were being washed and the ink started to run and mingle, I had to capture the textures and effects of the streaked and marbled ink. I pulled them out of the sink and laid them on to white paper.

I took the opportunity to lay a blank sheet on top to see if I could get a print

However it was a bit pale and washed out, so I worked into it with more ink using the roller.
