Surrounded by delicate loveliness.......
The process of producing a full colour monotype also gives the opportunity to put a second piece of beautiful paper through the antique etching press at Swansea Print Workshop, resulting in the creation of a ghost monotype. This is more ethereal than the robust full-colour first pull and the gentle colours seem to break up on the paper into tiny speckles like an Impressionist painting. Indeed, Impressionist painters such as Monet and Degas loved to make monotypes and they often worked over their 'ghosts' with oil pastels, enhancing the subtle and atmospheric quality of the monotype.
