Using Gouache

The top pic. is my original - gouache - using it well diluted with a sponge on a stick (!) and then underneath pics. are a couple that have been Photoshopped.

This is a small collograph using scrunched-up tissue and small bits of card, glued on to card, then painted and printed on to the paper. It's a really simple way to make a print, and you can manage to get a few prints out of it, even if you dont PVA it first. (Still need to do a bit more work on it though).

Hi There! It was great to hear from you. Sounds like you've been really busy? How's that little one doing?

These are beautiful, very delicate and yet the colours are stong.

Thank you very much - they were a bit of an experiment, but I was quite pleased with the end result.
