Monotypes are a kind of painted print. On a sunny morning I set up this informal still life and rolled out oil ink onto a zinc plate using a brayer. After a couple of hours of rag wiping, painting, texture impressing and more brayering, I lay the plate face up on my press with a piece of damp etching paper on it and felt blankets on top of plate and paper. I cranked the whole sandwich through the press, and out came this print. I did the second one the same way.
This third print is a monotype done with reference to a photo of a falling-down house on my friend’s property.
