Making prints runs alongside my painting practice. I just love the painterly quality of monoprints – and that’s what I’ve been doing this week in the print room at The Arthouse in Wakefield
a single print taken from a design created in oil paint or printing ink on glass or metal.
So above are pix of the printing ink, a roller a paintbrush and on the right my plate on which I’ve made a painting.
Pop through the press onto lovely Somerset Paper and hey presto:
So who made monoprints in the past? Well, Degas and Turner caught the bug and produced exquisite pieces. So I’m in good company.
OK, so there’s a lot more to explain about monoprinting …. watch out for more on me blog posts!
