June Monotypes, Part 1

June is shaping up to be a very productive in the printing department.  These are three prints and ghost prints I made three nights ago.  To be honest I'm not sure how I feel about them, I think there is too much contrast and I'm having a difficult time liking them.  I am enjoying the ghost prints better though, I guess not all is lost.

Tonight I will be doing some printing and will play around with the ink a bit more to see if I get the desired effects.  I think I also found the right type of black ink that will give a warmer and softer tone to the prints.  Let's hope it works out for me tonight.  More monotypes coming in the next couple of days.
