“Foggy Sunrise”

I created this monotype print April 2019, with the image depicting the sun rising over an imaginary city.

Image size is 5″ x 7″ on 8″ x 10″ Bockingford watercolour paper printed with Akua Intaglio inks. For anyone not familiar with ‘dark field monotypes’, typically a glass or plastic plate is inked up with a roller (brayer) and then the artist removes ink with fingers, brushes, cloth, ear-buds, or just about anything really. Ink can be partially or completely removed. A sheet of paper is then placed over the image and run through the press. Only one print can be made (other than a “ghost print” occasionally) and as such is a unique work of art.

The second photo shows what the print could look like in a standard 8×10 frame.

Available from my Etsy store for US$100 (free shipping).
