one potato, two potato

In a bid to try something different and get away from the computer I found myself armed with some printing books and a stack of my sketchbooks to have a go at good ole potato printing. Well if it's good enough for Lotta Jansdotter, then it's good enough for me - her work is ace!

Taking inspiration from a sketched peacock feather, I got to work on a 'Romano'. Lotta's advice is that chunky designs work best.

And here are the results...

It's a bit hit and miss. I think thicker paint would have worked better although I quite liked the textured effect when using more than one colour

Lots of fun and nice to do with the sun streaming in on a glorious Spring day. Give it a go!
