Watercolor, Monotype, and Linocut --Been Busy

John Lovett's Farm -- watercolor


Roman Harbor -- a monotype painted from the positive. A monotype starts with a zinc plate, on which I rolled white oil-based ink, then painted the image using black etching ink and a very stiff, short paintbrush.

Dressy Biker -- a linocut, which is a print made from a sheet of linoleum which I carved and inked. Can you tell she's looking down and her face is hidden? (My husband said her blouse neckline looks like a man's beard!) I'll keep working on it.

Dressy Biker
I thought she was in racing mode in her Sunday best with fancy racing shades. I don't see the beard, just a determinded peddler.
Bravo. Great work on all three images. You are a very talented lady. Press on.
