Artwork description:

After reading about how endangered giraffes were I found myself at Chester Zoo admiring these wonderful animals. They're long and dangly yet elegantand very beautiful. Their pattern and the shapes they create were made to be painted. As a result I've created a series on small monoprint studies.

This print is one of kind original piece, sold unframed on high quality Fabriano Paper, with enough of a border to mount and frame.

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.

Materials used:

Cream Fabriano Paper , Oil Inks, Printing press
