I got a perfect large sized box from an Amazon delivery to hide some old artwork that had been previously stacked on the floor from the kitty monster. I came across some pretty good ones in the middle of some awful ones.
I did this painting in seventh grade!
These two aren’t paintings, they’re actually something I did in a print making class years ago on monotypes.
Basically you paint using oil paints on a plate and then it gets smooshed onto damp printmaking paper (like bfk rives). I remember it being a fun, but time consuming process. If I had a giant printmaking press lying around I’d totally do more. It’s funny looking at these now that I’m getting into oil painting. There’s something about the texture of monotypes that lets the different layers feel like they’re floating on top of each other.
And here’s some new work from this summer.
Have I progressed or not? What are you thoughts. Happy Solar Eclipse.
