Experimenting With The Mari

7 Jan



I carried on experimenting with my Mari Lwyd sketch in monotype, getting used to working the ink and how much to leave on the plate to get the best result in the print. This is the one I like best, the density of the black is good, there is plenty of definition on the face of the Mari and the chine collé stuck successfully using Intaglio Printmaker’s Litho / Relief ink onto Somerset paper. However, the ink was very difficult to work on the plate so I decided to add some Extender for the next one and see what difference it makes. I also want to try out a different paper. So on to the next experiment…..




I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    What he says! Soooo sinister.

      It is, but not as sinister as some. This is quite a skittish Mari but a large skull atop a shroud is always going to be spooky 😁

    This is so good. I love the mix of media in the technique, and the mix of sinister and celebratory in the skull.
