Lovely orchids in a monochrome colour black which gives this image a pensive perspective. I have orchids in my studio as they are easy to keep and are fascinating to look closely at.
A monotype monoprint is when the ink has been rolled and wiped onto a smooth surface and then run through a printing press. All the ink is removed from the plate making it very difficult to repeat the image so they are one of a kind prints.
They are difficult prints to make as it can take most of the day to wipe and re apply the ink until one is satisfied.
