|Back Yard Vacation 4×6 dark field Monotype with colored pencil|
Back Yard Vacation was created using the same process as the last post (see images below). The reference photo was taken at a friend’s house in San Diego. They have a lovely pool surrounded by palms, geraniums and a privacy hedge. It’s the perfect just-off-the-kitchen place to meander in your pajamas, with morning coffee, to find a comfy chair to plan the day ahead. You go ahead and take that chair by the peachy umbrella. I’ll sit by the pool and dip my feet in while we chat. 🙂
Back Yard Vacation is available in my Etsy Shop.

If you want to try printing a monotype without a press, here’s an 8 minute video posted by the nice folks at Akua/Speedball, featuring Akua founder Susan Rostow using a pin-press (rolling pin) to transfer a monotype & a ghost print. Check it out. (If you get these blog posts via email, you can see the video here.)
