A black and white piece using charcoal, graphite, graphite powder, pen, rubber and black ink.
Really nice monochrome picture. Should be framed.
I really enjoyed this funnily enough, you know I’m not keen on the pastels on my hands. I did get filthy doing this and I think I’ll do it again. I used quick black ink for the leaf impression which has come out blue for some reason, I know we use this for it’s lovely colour variations with water but did not expect it to be so blue here.
May be the quink reacted with something from the leaves?
I loved this project by Karen Stamper. Her style really suits the way I like to work.
This was a great exploration of mark making. Especially striking in monochrome.
Did you enjoy this? It's quite a messy way of working with charcoal and ink...
I like the mixture of techniques which give an interesting sense of depth.
