Etching, monotypes.

 

It is a bit of a playground for me, I get ideas from this type of work and I am l living not far from a great printmaking workshop, so I can experiment with etching, carborandum and for the last two years the technique of Monotype in company of other artists..

Monotypes are prized because of their unique textural qualities. They are made by drawing on glass or a plate of smooth metal or stone with a greasy substance such as printer's ink or oil paint.

Then the drawing is pressed by hand onto a sheet of absorbent paper or is printed on an etching press. A monotype is a one of a kind and even though a monotype is a print, it is an original not a reproduction.

The monotypes are printed on Fabriano paper, 285gm.
