Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary
This monoprint was made with water color pencils. It isn`t technically a monoprint, as I never actually got around to printing it, but it is a monoprint in process, so that is close enough. I took a photo in a National Geographic from the nineties and created a sketch (I didn`t copy the original!) and taped some tracing paper over that. I roughly traced my sketch with the water color pencils, with some slight revisions here and there. The flowers, in particular, were really too small and annoying for me to stand copying, so I enlarged them a bit. I think in the end that gave them a better presence in the overall composition, so I guess laziness can pay off!
