Why peppers? Well a friend who has a delicatessen said she might be interested to have a few little pieces in her shop to decorate a few blank areas of wall. And if she doesn't like them then I want to try the little Tea Room nearby that also sells art. It's time to get my work out there a bit more.
I love this mark making technique - monoprinting on tissue paper which I stick down and hand colour with inks. And then additional collage from inked book pages.
Here I have used pen to add additional embellishment but for the final pieces the last marks will be stitched.
And here are two pieces in progress - here the tissue is stuck onto rag paper.
