Monotypes, Part 1

Fog Rising, Olivebridge, 2014, monotype, image 5 x 7 inches, paper 7 1/2 x 11 inches 
This is the first group of monotypes I made last year. Some more successful than others, but this was the learning period. It takes some getting used to; sometimes too much ink gets rubbed off, sometimes not enough, and tones print darker than expected, the light reflecting off the copper or zinc plate can mislead you. Regardless of how tricky monotype printing can be though, I have been hooked.
