Monoprinting Masterclass with Ann Bridges
I covered a sketchbook last night to take with me on my course. We had to take some sketches and photos of wild flowers as a starting point.
I just had a great day today when I went to the gallery of the The Royal Cambrian Academy in Conwy where they often have art courses. Today's course was a Monoprinting Masterclass tutored by Ann Bridges - printmaker.
Above are some of the prints I turned out in the morning session. Below, the afternoon samples. I was not quite as happy with those.
I sat between very clever ladies, the one on my right was a sculptor with a fine arts degree and the lady on the left was doing a fine art degree. The work above is the work of the sculptor and as you can see she used some of her samples to make a box!
The fish design used above was very successful and was made by Jenny who is doing the fine art degree.
