Cat in the Window (first print)
Cat in the Window (color added)
In early December, I attended a monotype demonstration by artist Wliiiam Park, followed by a workshop and exhibition at OSA (Oregon Society of Artists). Materials were provided by Gamblin Paints, there was
paper, a press and everything needed to experiment in this medium, new for me. Dairy Creek was done in a two stage process. First the image was put down on plexiglass in black sticky ink, then rubbed and scraped away to reveal the white areas. A second layer of color was put down on top after running through the press. I used my favorites thalo blue and green. The cat in the window shows the first stage in black and white. Later I added a bit of red and yellow to suggest the lights outside. It is now the property of the office manager at OSA, hope she enjoys it!
