Monoprints — Fine art prints about Relationships, Intimacy & Fashion

I just posted (6) six monoprints, that I did a while back, to my fine art website.

monoprint fine artThe thing I find most interesting about monoprints is that they are one of a kind prints. That explains the "mono" intro. Anyway, very fine art-like, and the uniqueness increases the value and rareness of the print.

In most printing formats you can run many copies of the same artwork; hence the name print.

The creation process of the monoprints I made was:
  1. Subtracting by wiping away sections of the color from several different colored plates. The plexiglass plates where colored with thinned oils that I rolled on with a brayer.

  2. Meanwhile, I soaked the Reeves BFK paper in a huge vat of water.

  3. Then one at a time I ran the different colored plates (laid on top of the wet paper) through the press.

  4. After the paper dried, I then went over certain areas of the fine art and accentuated aspects of it with Rembrandt soft pastel sticks.
