Monotype – Porthleven harbour wall
Inspired by my friend David’s comment on my post yesterday, and his reference to John Virtue, I have had another go at Porthleven harbour – even more simple shapes obtained by using a monotype technique. I spread the paint (grey and dark brown) on my cleaned glass palette, spread it about to my liking with a brush, and then took an impression off it with a piece of paper and pressing with the back of a spoon.
Of course this produces a mirror image. Having peeled it off I scratched and pushed the paint a bit with a pen knife, photographed it and flipped it in Photoshop to get the image the right way round again. Now then, what if I re-photographed at high quality and got it printed REALLY big?
