Well, no, I didn't mean to, not today. I meant to paint. In fact, I did paint, but that's another story for another day. When I'd finished painting, though, I had some paint on the palette. I don't know about you, but I hate wasting materials, so I added some white acrylic to the acrylic mix already there, and began monoprinting.
What's a monoprint? It's a way of producing a one-off print in a very painterly style; it is explained beautifully here (I wonder what we did without Wikipaedia...). So these pieces are abstract monoprints; if I'm honest, I'd say I made them for the joy of working with the paint, and for no other reason...though they are in the form of greetings cards, and doubtless will end up in the shop at some point. I'm really pleased with them, see what you think!
