Have spent most of today experimenting with a way of printing monoprints or even possibly variable editions. I have been painting, pressing, drawing on cardboard ‘plates’ using water colours and non waterproof drawing inks which when dry I run thru my press using damp paper. The image is transfered to the paper and although still a bit much a drawing it takes on a different quality by being printed. Have had some success and a couple of failures but the more I do the more ideas for processes I get. Could be busy for the next few days. Here are three of the better results from today.
