Monoprints from Miro Foundation Workshop
Above the monoprints I produced at the Miro Foundation workshop using a mix of paper cut stencils, embossing with pine needles (hard to see in photograph but all around big brown cone!) and leaves, drawing on reverse on to an inked plate and a transfer of a photograph I found several years ago in a Barcelona flea market. It's a little boy in a forest surrounded by pine cones - I like to think he too was on a trip to the Mallorcan pine forests fifty years before me.
Below are some things from my A3 sketchbook - it was refreshing to work at that size - realise I tend to always stick to A4 because it fits under my scanner!
