Blue Flower Monoprint Transformed

I printed an original and a ghost of a blue flower on the last day of my 4 class KALA workshop.  Neither of them came out well.  So, I modified them digitally.  They are better than they were!

I was having a bummer of a monoprint class at KALA last night and three away 3 prints and one failed chine colle.  Finally, I reverted to my favorite theme - birds!  This print came out OK.  11x14 charbonnel oil ink on a plastic plate.  Messy process but can be fun.

Learning New Printmaking Techniques

First two student prints from new Berkeley KALA class on monoprinting with Charbonnel oil inks and plastic plates.  So much fun!  Printing originals, ghosts and offsets.  My one ghost was too ghostly (ie pale) so I'm going to paint or pastel over.  My one offset was so light, the top print is actually printed on the offset of the bottom print.
