I’m lagging behind, but task after task I’m slowly following Sian’s race!
For today I prepared a monoprinted ground with yellow and lime green thinking of my lemons and sliced these up for a change. As a marker I used a biro this time. My monoprint was an attempt to suggest lemon inner small lines.
Many slices …
And just one HUGE slice …

Today I changed my marker to a fine tip felt liner (0.4) and made a simple still life composition, a small raku vase and a lemon.
The greenish background was a total surprise: I sponged a bag of Hibiscus tea and got a pinkish red that dried to green !??!!? And now is a cold grey.
And for check and fun I used this photographic pencil sketch effect on my Iphone photo, I like it better than the real thing! A sketch of a sketch ….
