Artist oil colour on acid free paper

Description

  The monotype print is created by rolling a thin layer of artist oil paint on a glass faced block. Elements of a design are torn, cut or punched out of paper then rolled with appropriate colors of paint and arranged carefully on the painted glass. A sheet of printing stock is registered, dropped onto the glass and rolled with a brayer to force the paint onto the paper's surface. When sufficient pressure has been applied, the single print is pulled from the block. The elements are recycled to print a series of similar but unique compositions. The session continues for as long as possible as the greater the output, the greater the chance that a beautiful print will emerge.
This print has been digitally cropped and edited for production as a giclee print.
 The original monotype is not for sale at  this time.
