You can see A. Brooke Heuts work in her website. She is a great instructor and has conveyed to me the excitement and freedom of the monoprint process. I cannot wait to take another printing workshop or class with her.
I made this print by inking a lace type paper with the red ink and pressing it on the plate. I then used the plate to print on the paper using the press. The paper has to be wet so we kept our paper in a tub of water. My next step was to ink flowers using a brush and then put the plate and paper through thepress. The other prints I made below followed the same process.
|Under the Sea|
I used a piece of mess bag for the sky and water. I painted the grass, and used a wine cork for the red and green circles.
I used different materials for this print. Cardboad, textured paper and a water-soluble pencil (purple stem).
|Three Orange Leaves|
I used a plastic fern for this print and the two prints below.
|Green and While Leaves 1|
|Green and White Leaves 2|
In this print, I rolled together two different blues and came up with the gradation of color in the sky. I used the plates for the buildings and the grass.
