Colorful Monoprints

How about a little color? The blue monoprints are each 13"x13" and the yellow and green are 15"x15". These were part of a series of ten I had hanging in my show. Each is embossed with the image.

The texture you see in the background of the brighter blue and the yellow pieces is the result of inking two plates and then "kissing" them together. Sometimes I also placed stencils between the two plates to better preserve one of the colors. This process took place before running anything through the press.

  1. Okay, I think I am having monoprint envy. I love the blues, and may now have to start a line item in my budget to continue collecting!
