On My Feet All Day

I’m working on a series of full colour reduction monotypes at the moment and I spent all day at Swansea Print Workshop, on my feet! I’m exhausted. People don’t realise how tiring art can be. The series is based on small pastel drawings I did when I was in Pakistan earlier this year.  This technique uses a perspex plate to make three drawings into ink; the first in Process Yellow, the second in Process Magenta and the third in Process Cyan. They are printed in this order to give a full colour image. The plates are put through the press a second time to give a ‘ghost’ monotype.

I used Caligo relief inks, the water washable ones, onto BFK Rives paper, 250gsm. You can read more about the technique here. Now I’m off to bed 🙂
