Spontaneous Monoprint Workshop Friday 11th April 2014

Spontaneous Monoprinting

Friday 11th April 2014

Monoprinting and monotypes can include collage, painting, drawing and tracing and a wide variety of effects are possible by altering the colours using found objects or altering the texture of the inks used.

Both techniques mean that no two prints are alike and the beauty lies in the spontaneity and wide range of imagery and style that can be produced.

Chinese Brush Painting

Chinese Brush Painting

There is more to Chinese painting than meets the eye. Of course, the picture itself can be easily read, but unless its inner and symbolic meanings are recognised the whole painting is only partially seen and partially enjoyed.

Underlying the apparent simplicity and harmony of composition, first of all there is a philosophy; one that sees a unifying pattern of life in all its natural forms. The artist must express both the spirit of vitality and renewal and the eternal harmony and order that runs through all in nature. Therefore the painter finds in every natural form, no matter how humble, a sense of greatness and purpose.
