Today I was experimenting and practicing viscosity monotype in anticipation of a course I am due to teach in early February. I wasn't having as much success as I had just before Christmas. Not sure if it was because I was trying to take a short cut and use previously mixed inks or if it was because I was using different colours. Anyway, I now have a plan for the day workshop. My samples can be seen here. The samples that were less successful than I'd hoped were bottom right (third colour was too close the the first), 2nd from bottom left (colours got a bit muddy), 2nd from middle right (ditto) and top left ( linework filled in too much).
