Artist's description:

A small monoprint of a magpie in flight, the work capturing the beautiful wing span on the bird. A very simple piece created over the course of two prints. Framed in a small Gold coloured frame, ready to hang.

My prints are created using artist quality Linseed Oil based Inks on Fabriano Paper (which is 50% cotton, Italian made for printmaking). All prints are processed through a printing press.

What is a mono-print?
Also known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques , a monoprint is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, editions are not possible.
Mono-printing is to make an impression on paper, the process only allowing one print to be made. There are many different techniques that can be described as mono-prints, from potato printing to screen-printing, the word does not describe the process but rather the amount of impressions that can be made.
This monoprint was created by rolling ink onto a zinc plate, whipping away the ink with a rag and brush to create an image. By using oil based inks the drying time allows several hours to work in details before the images must be printed. Once ready the print is placed face down on damp top quality watercolour paper and rolled through a printing press. The pressure of the printing press transfers the ink from the plate onto the paper.
