the twist


Here’s another direct line(or trace)  monotype, based on an original drawing I did in a life drawing session. I like twisted and contrapposto poses; I like the challenge of drawing them. This sort of monotype technique gives a gentle line and soft, smudgy textures. I used Intaglio Printmakers black litho/relief ink and a fairly thin paper, just a good quality cartridge paper for this.

    Oooh, I just learned a great new word: “contraposto”. Thank you!
