Summer grasses are so simple and beautiful gently swaying in the breeze. These are drawn on top of monoprinted backgrounds, which I find really helps me start a drawing, avoiding the empty void feeling a clean sheet of paper gives me.
To monoprint a background for your drawing simply roll our some of your oil paint, using a roller, thinly on a sheet of galss or perspex. Then place a thinish paper ontop of your inked up area and rub gently with your hand. The ink will be picked up by the paper where you make it touch the inked up area.
Experiment with varying the pressure you're applying, the colour of the ink, use a finger or a pencil to create different marks on the paper.
Enjoy being summer creative! (Take your monoprinting outside to embed some summer vibes into your drawing.)
