Monoprint Monday

This drawing was a bit of a leap for me. I love to draw on the Gelli printed papers, but this time, I added a layer of ink spatters on the finished drawing. After the drawing was complete, I felt like the leaves needed some texture.  Spatters and splotches are used by many artists to add interest to a piece, but I have never done that before.  I didn't want to risk it looking like I spilled by jar of ink.... Baby steps.

This drawing was done using colored pencils and inks on a mono printed (Gelli printed) acrylic background.  It measures 81/2 x 11 inches.

This drawing as well as others are available in my Etsy shop.
