Quenching my thirst with Susan Rostow’s firehose of information on Dimensional Drypoint Monoprints with Akua Inks

Its been a long time since I did any print making. A very long time. 72 hours into a weeklong workshop and I’m struggling to get my footing in the print studio. I want an etching press cheat sheet. And a vocabulary list.

I miss the feeling of competence that accompanies my painting. Its good for me, growth. Two days to go but I suspect I won’t come home with brilliant prints, but I’ll have some terrific ideas to explore more fully. Here’s some of what I’ve done: monoprints with drypoint, grits, etc and monotypes – with a ghost print.

Catherine Kehoe’s Drawing: Geometry and Structure

Day two. And now consider the rectangle. First the homework, then blind contour drawing, followed by thumbnails. Then putting the figure into an envelope and making curves with straight lines.


What’s on the nightstand?
