It must be a required ritual at the end of the year to go back through past works and see how I feel about them now. It’s been a long time since I looked at the little monotypes I did a few winters ago. I found them in a portfolio today and also found the scans still sitting on my computer.
Surprisingly (or not) they seem fresh again. These are only 4×4″ but are printed on 11 x 14″ paper. I will definitely do more of these. I love the element of surprise provided by this process.
If you’re curious about any aspect of printmaking without a press, here is a post that I wrote in 2007 providing some helpful links.
Here’s part one of three of my demonstration, and it continues in the two following posts.
When I do more monotypes, I’ll write about them again.
