Monotype Experiments

I have been working with monotype recently. I have made up a sketchbook of ideas and samples as in the featured image above.

I made the Fragments monotype (below left)) without an etching press straight onto glass with printing ink.

The other, Early Evening View (above right) was made on an aluminium plate using etching ink and was printed with the use of a printing press.

The effects are very different and both have interesting qualities. I will be continuing with my experimental monotypes and maybe combining both methods..
