Instruments and rags

As we continue in my art class with our still life theme, we have tried musical instrument and mono printing, this is a wonderful technique where you paint glass or a ceramic tile with oil paint and by using pressure, transfer the image onto paper, it was suggested that you could only take a single print and to use smooth paper, I had a go using watercolour paper and water with my water soluble oil paint and got a very pleasing result that I might work up some more.

Then we went back to basics,  pencils and  cloth I am told this was first principles for artist and they would spend hours studying the folds in cloth, I loved this exercise and became completely lost in it for far too many hours in class and afterwards.

  1. Oh wow, those are gorgeous! I especially like the one right above the pencil sketches of cloth, it reminds me of a tropical frog (been looking at too many of those lately, perhaps). And your cloth study sketches make my hands itch to do some myself, thank you for the inspiration!
