This monoprint titled "Still You" was from the first batch of monoprints I pulled a few weeks ago. This one turned out quite to my liking but I was dismayed to find out that some acrylic paint had stuck it to the table I had laid it out to dry on. As you can see, there is damage to the back of the print (as I carefully worked to pry it off the table) and you can see a slight fold in the image on front (in the central left blue area). However I felt this print was just too compelling to throw out! That fold actually works in the image, but, I don't feel comfortable charging for it. So, it's basically FREE! Artfinder won't let me not charge anything so I have to charge one cent. You pay a penny for the print and then whatever shipping is for your area. So, if you like it snap it up!
Done in an earth palette of black, teal, turquoise, ultramarine blues, white, raw sienna and yellow ochre this abstract monoprint measures apprx. 12" (21.59 cms) x 9"(22.86 cms) and the image goes right to the edge of the paper. In monoprinting chance plays a big part - you have to work very quick and get one crack at it. When it works it's fantastic - the colours move, melt and shift in a very vibrant and determined manner. No wishy-washy controlled brush strokes. It's magnificent.
The back of the print may have paint smudges on as it's part of the immediacy of the process. I can't stop to clean my hands and sometimes the paint oozes over the back, but it in no way harms the image on the front. The paper is quite thick.
