One Potato, Two Potato...

Talk about bringing back memories!  Potato printing seemed so easy when I was 6 and uninhibited. 

Here's a closer view, and although it isn't perfect, I do like the darker outline on some of the images.

Here, I applied a wash to the background, still following Gina's wonderful lessons.  I'm so thankful for her seemingly one on one tutorial.

In this image, I applied some gold oil crayon to some of the outlines.  I like the look of this.

Good grief....knowing when to stop is one of the hallmarks of a good artist.  In the above image, you can see that my work became a bit heavy handed.   A little muddy on the left, and I just kept trying to improve the look....Thankfully, poor results only make me want to try harder.


  1. Super work Jan. I'm slightly overwhelmed that my tutorials are being followed all over the world.

  2. That is beautiful and it's amazing what you can do with a potato.

  3. What an amazing result from cutting a shape into a potato, but I do think your print is probably more sophisticated than most potato prints! Ruby is so sweet! Vanessa xxx
