Summer Meadows and Country Lanes – 5 cards based on my monotype and collagraph prints.
The monotypes are created using silhouette stencil flower shapes from acetate and textured wall papers. After applying oil based ink to a sheet of plastic to create a background, the silhouette shapes are inked up separately and placed on top of the background. A piece of damp fine art paper is placed on top of the inked plate and passed through an etching press. The ink transfers to the paper.
There is no permanent image left on the plate other than the residue of the ink. This is sometimes referred to as the ‘ghost image’ and I sometimes use this to develop a series of 3-4 prints that are similar but none is a complete repetition of the first print. Occasionally, I take the prints a stage further and add a further drawn layer to the image.
The collagraph prints are made from pressing natural materials into a coating of wood filler on mount board or PVA and carborundum. The plates are sealed before the application of inks before they are finally printed.
