Akua ink monotypes

I am honored to be working with printmaster Sharri LaPierre this fall. She is teaching me many aspects of printmaking and I am an eager learner! We spent a few hours in her studio this week with a focus on monotype, using the water based Akua inks. 

I wanted to create surfaces for future drawings or pastel paintings. These could become underpaintings for figure sketches in ink or charcoal. Or, maybe I will frame them without any modifications.

Check out this video by the creator of Akua inks to see an example of their use!
