about these monotypes

I love the new monoprints! I used to have so much fun doing those, every time I come to your site I realize how much I miss print making in all its glorious forms.
By the way, several times in the last couple weeks when i’ve tried to post a comment, it took forever for the comment window to open and it would eventually time out and say file 404. It might just be me but I thought I’d let you know since I have a high speed internet connection.
Thanks, Elise – though these are old works, as I mentioned with the previous image, but new to you!
About the comment problem -is anyone else experiencing this? It’s rather alarming – will get it checked out. Thanks for letting me know, Elise.
I am very interested in what a difference the colours and their placement makes. I’m also fascinated by the escaping lines which look like threads.
I love it when you let your hand go. Number 1 in this series is so very dynamic – really jumps at you.
Omega – Yes, this is something that one can observe when doing a series like this, when the subject is similar. I was quite taken with being able to draw outside the printed area.
Anna, I think the first one is my favourite too, for the same reason. I really enjoyed being able to paint and draw rapidly, rather like doing sketches.
Thank you both for your ever faithful comments!
