monotype 8

monotype 8 on buff Arches 88

inked plate

my work station, did not use the yellow ochre that night
I was playing with the Gamsol and I discovered that when I "painted" Gamsol on my inked plate, I could use a brayer to pick up the ink in the area with the Gamsol. Not a clean wipe like a paper towel or rag would have given (or a Q-tip with alcohol), but a lift nonetheless. 

In the end I was very happy with the textures and lines and inexactness of this print. Oh, it's a figure all right, but loose and expressive. Precious learning in this monotype class!
