Gelatin Plate Monotype Printing Demo
with Andrea Huffman

"Gelatin Plate Monotype Printing is a creative and intuitive technique to create one-of-a-kind prints. Using found objects, plant material, stencils and masks on an inked printing plate made from unflavored gelatin, multiple images and colors can be layered to explore the many possibilities to create intriguing designs. Creating painterly monotype prints will be discussed briefly, as well"

One day will venture into opaques.  All will be learned as you work from Anne's photo or if you choose to work with your own photo. All Levels are welcome.  You will never fear watercolor again.

Letting go and realizing that there are no rules, depending entirely on understanding Design and Color Theory.  All of which will be thoroughly explained and illustrated.  Then the fun begins.  Lots of intuitive painting time with help finding your direction and finally what it takes to pull an Abstract together.
