Irene Naested and Corinne Keough demonstrate monoprinting automatism painting and drawing in this demonstration video. (Mono meaning one). Music and editing by Seeton Naested. This process can automatically give the artist, without conscious thoughts or preconceived ideas, the inspiration to create shapes, lines, and  textures as starting points for surrealist artwork. The Monoprinting technique can also be used to develop preconceived ideas/images. Various colour mediums can be used on a non-porous surface. Once the print has been pulled and allowed to dry over printing and mark making can be added.
