Good Monday, friends. Spent literally all day today putting lips on faces and not really liking the result. Wrong shape, too red, too dark, too light -- the usual problems. But will continue with them regardless, and perhaps try to put hair and skin on them like in my prototype.
And did a number on my naked lady. So have something I'm calling "Nude Spring" (because of the spring-like colors plus the nude):
And I have face in the woods too, that I might call "Woodsy Face," or something:
I think it would look better if it was wider on the right, but it was very smudgy, so I cropped it.
I kinda like both of these, so may attempt to do them again, only cleaner. If not, they'll be monotypes -- like most of what I do. I get bored just printing a single image, I'm afraid, and always try to "save" a print that's under or over inked. This is why I don't really consider myself a printmaker, since real printmakers think nothing of pulling a perfect edition of 50 at the drop of a hat.
