If you did the monoprinting exercise you have all these great prints, now what? Let's paint them!
For this demonstration I show you how I go about painting the four pieces shown above. I use acrylic and gouache, but you can use any paints that you would like. I tried my best (okay, so I tried a little) to keep the print underneath visible in each one. While it's not important to keep the print underneath visible, I just like how it looks when a little of it peeks through, especially with the red print. This is just a personal preference, you can go about it any way that feels right to you.
There will be upcoming lessons that are more detailed in painting, this is a loose and intuitive painting demonstration.
Supplies I Used:
I used acrylics for a few and Gouache for the others.
Acrylics used: Light Magenta, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Titanium White
Gouache: Vermillion, Raw Umber, White
