Monotypes with Ingrid Albrecht
What a great trip to be invited with! Cousin Laura invited me to join some Midwest Collage Society members for a mini workshop with Ingrid Albrecht at her new Ravenswood Gallery in Chicago. Three days learning rolled into one eight hour session. Ingrid is a great teacher and there were so many new techniques to get involved in. She has a gorgeous setting for her gallery and studio. The blue and gold piece is an acrylic and india ink piece, I think it's upside down, but when I viewed the photo it looked better that way. I rather enjoyed the subtractive quality working with india ink on a plexi-glass plate, some new supplies to play around with, soon again I hope. I pulled many prints that are ready to be basis for some additional drawing or painting.
