Adding Colour Washes to a Monoprint.
I've added some light washes to the monoprint of Michael Portillo that I did the other day, and darkened the background with black gesso. The colours I used were yellow ochre, alizarin crimson and delft blue, and the ink which was water soluble dissolved slightly to help blur the edges. Here's the original. A good experiment - I shall try more tomorrow.
