More practice and gelatin prints

I have done another small practice piece using a dry brush this time, some bits are ok.
I spent a bit of time making some more gelatin prints, I cut out some shapes, picked some maidenhair fern from the garden and away I went.
I couldnt find my roller so these were done with foam paintbrushes, but I am not sure if I like the stripes that are left.
It is a different effect any way.
A lovely sunny morning so we walked along the beach but both of us are a bit lame at the moment, my knee is still playing up and John has some stitches on his thigh that are at the pulling stage.
So a sea Haiku by Buson.
Tides of the spring sea,
tide after indolent tide
on and on ...

I really like the last two...they have a real dreamy look to them!

I think I would agree with you about the lines Penny. I like the effect one gets with the roller better I think - but maybe I am old-fashioned, so don't take what I say as necessarily right. Also, I think one has to experiment in these things.

Sorry for your off day, Penny, but glad to see your gelatin prints!

These are just lovely, Penny. I must try them, later on, when I carve out some space in this small home where I live.

I'm sorry to read about your mum. I hope you don't have too many low moments.
Your paintings are lovely. Can you tell me what a gelatin print is please?
