Great Plein Air, Cindy! Thanks Alain, Nancy, Agnes, Gail, Allen &Gary
Afternoon,nice light, but it looks a lot warmer than it felt, after 1 1/2 hours sitting still in that gorgeous wind.
The roll up plate. I'm pleased with the drawing but I don't love it- I's not exactly my vision of this scene. I think that makes it easier to want to work it out in an etching.
My Bastion Square long monoprint I feel is so spot-on that it makes me nervous to try to translate it into a plate. I will have to think about that.
I reworked the roll up plate, working on the light table, wiping away ink , experimenting with the values.
Then I printed it on Rives. The ink is quite dry-when I tried to print one of these on mulberry. the paper completely stuck, but the Rives is tough enough to peel off.
This is the ghost-I might use it with pencils to work out values.
