Every month in my art critique group, we do a challenge to push our creativity. This month we were given a copy of this tree to use as our inspiration for any medium in any size.
I decided to combine a lino cut with monoprint backgrounds to make a series of prints.
This is the lino cut plate with the background cut away. It is an 8" x 10" piece of unmounted linoleum to it could go through the press.
These are the 8" x 10" prints in a variety of color combos.
I went for a series of different colors which look like sherbet to me!
I will have to play with more colors soon.
After that dried I added two coats of gloss medium, letting each layer dry.
It was a great challenge.
