Artist's description:

By the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance. Bright red Flanders poppies are delicate but resilient flowers and grew in their thousands, flourishing even in the middle of chaos and destruction during the First World War. Remembrance Sunday is a day for the Great Britain to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
This monotype is made with two layers of acrylic paint on a home made gelatine plate and after drying colored in with Karisma soft colored pencils.
This monoprint is sold with a passe partout size: 40 x 50 x 0,3 cm

Printing gives me the pleasure of surprise. It always turns out different than expected. This triggers new ideas. My monoprints often consist of multiple layers of paint printed on top of each other. And after that printing process I also draw or paint on the prints again.

Materials used:

Acrylic paint; Karisma soft colored pencils; Acid-Free paper, 135 g/m2
