A Monoprint is a unique piece of art created using printing techniques. Here I used winsor and newton oil paints. I painted these onto a canvas and then when I was happy laid a piece of paper over the top.
I used my hands to smooth out the paper ( hand pressed) and then lifted up the edge pulling away the resulting image. With this technique it is possible to get results that are difficult or impossible to achieve any other way.
This piece I decided to leave as it is. Other oil monoprints I have left to dry and will be working on the top of them with oil paint or ink in the near future.

There are many Art Groups available on LinkedIn and sometimes they prove to be useful places to ask questions and discuss art. Sometimes however the forums can be swamped with self promotion round robins and sales pitches. For this reason I have started two groups on LinkedIn
Artiplace - This is an Art forum for discussion of paper pencils art and the way we work. This is a closed group which means that it is not open to Galleries and Salesmen. Round robin sales pitches will be removed and those making them will be taken from the group list. This is a good place for technical discussion and work critique.
Professional members need to use LinkedIn to make new work connections and to promote their work. I have started the sister group
Artiplace Networking and Promotion- This is the place for artists to list their websites, give notice of exhibitions and place all round robin self promotions. The reason why this is a good place to be seen is that I will be encouraging galleries and gallery owners to join and to list their open exhibitions and calls for work. If you list your website and availability here then all the subscribing galleries will be notified when you update your details.
This is free advertising. To join please go to LinkenIn Art groups and make a request to join.
