Gelli printing

Today I took a monoprinting workshop.  Monoprinting on a gelli block.  I took only the gelli block to class, and other than admiring Colette Copeland's work, I stayed away from watching any videos or tutorials online.  I wanted to form my first impressions by doing the work, not by watching how it's done.
I was happy to have a wonderful teacher, MaryJo McGraw.  She was patient and full of good advice.  
Painting and drawing are the techniques that I am most afraid of, I feel the most uncomfortable because I am not sure what to do with it, or how to control it.  But here I am, challenging myself and it's OK.
Here is a peak of what I made in class.
