The past few months have found me busy on a different printmaking path.
Monotypes are so versatile … They are often lovely standing alone but also create a great base upon which to build. I enjoy painting atop the monoprint with liquid pigment ink to add color, watercolor, water soluble pencil. Pan pastels give me the most saturated pops of color.
I’m putting five new works on paper into my portfolio. They are all the same size… 11″ x 14″ paper with the imprinted, inked area measuring 9″ x 12″.
Have loved the process of enhancing one of my 5 Trees drypoint intaglio prints into a fuller, more colorful piece. Over time I added watercolor pencil and a little oil pastel to round it out.
