This week I thought I would do something a little different. I noticed a great challenge blog called Art journey journal and saw that orange esmeralda had come up with a great theme this month 'SEA'
I haven't done an on-line challenge for ages and fancied having a wee dabble.
The sea is always in my work in one way or another, spending most of my life living by the sea it is hard to imagine being away from it.
I was going to collage a fishy piece based on my drawing but instead decided to make a lino cut and repeat the pattern almost like a fabric print.
From my drawing I made a lino-cut and then used it to print onto heavy watercolour paper.
After I had printed the fish I covered them in masking fluid and ink sprayed the background with cosmic shimmer spray.
linking up for the first time to..art journey monthly Thank you Sheila for a great theme!
and as usual the wonderful paint party Friday
