Jen Worden's Art Challenge - Week #3 - Monoprint

I am having a blast with Jen Worden's weekly art challenges! They are great warm up exercises for the other projects that I'm making and a great exploration of techniques and materials.

This mono print (which Jen now has featured on her blog) utilized a very simple technique that I'd not used in a long time. It was made by covering a glass plate with acrylic paint. I then drew in the paint with both the handles and brush ends of a variety of sizes of brushes. Finally, I went over the entire thing with a brayer. I plan to enhance the dragonflies a bit with some metallic powders.
