Walking two paths at once:TAST Week Five Herringbone and Monotypes

If you'd like to see the latest embroidering adventure, go here

Meanwhile, back in the studio, I ran a few sample monotypes ready to demo this artform next week to a group of local artists. It seemed like a good idea to unearth the equipment, make sure I have enough tools to go around, this seems to be a popular group, and find out if my blockprinting inks are still alive. All seems to be well, and I had a great time playing up there.

Testing, testing! these are quick studies, all done in water based blockprinting ink, on tissue paper, only paper to hand at the time, but it's quite a nice support, all the same.

Enjoyed seeing your monoprints. I always need to know size, I don't know why. Nipped over to your other blog to check on your fabric art. Love the random shapes and the colours.

Mono is very much a style that I can embrace! I wish I could join in on this class. There is something very powerful about executing form and flow in black and white - as always, your work is thought-provoking and inspiring.

Great results - I too like the black and white. Very effective!
