Back On the Ropes
I just pasted this sketch onto a couple of boards, a new addition to the "rope" series. This one is called "Let Go." My goal with this print is to experiment with getting a more painterly effect in the background. I want to try to use the wood almost the way one uses an acrylic plate when doing a monotype, working the pigments on the board. I don't know if that's even possible. Maybe the wood is too thirsty and will soak up the paint too much to get the effects I'm imagining, but that's what I plan to play with this time.
