|Plume Verte 6x4 Monotype Ghost with watercolor|
You can see in the image at the bottom of this post that the last ghost was very faint, but there was just enough structure to have fun with watercolor glazing on top of the ghost print. It was a lovely time in my studio, and poignant, because it's the last print of this particular monotype of my gr-aunt Arzelia when she was sixteen. I'm betting I'll use the reference photo again, because I love it, but for now, and for this monotype ghost, she's the last one.

Art is a great expression of emotion which covers your attitude towards people & things. It can have no formulas, as it is a registration of reactions. Modern Art theory says art musn't look like anything at all & nothing is creative unless it comes from the inner conscious & technique is nothing. That's misleading to people. They ought to know how to draw, at least. I don't like to see a face with a nose three times too long & a neck out of joint just because the artists' mind happened to conjure it that way.
