I was immediately in love as soon as I pulled this print and turned it over! The colour and colour transitions, the texture created, the valleys and peaks created and changes of high contrast areas and smooth passes. Done in acrylics on heavier weight watercolour paper in several different blues it is just a very appealing piece. The actual paper size is 18" (45.72 cms) x 24" (60.96 cms) and the image area is 16" (40.64 cms) x 20" (50.8 cms). The monoprint is numbered 1/1, titled and signed along the bottom of the print, just under the image area.
The process of monotype printing is one in which paint/ink is put down on a plate (plexiglass, etc.), the image is constructed on that plate, paper is put down on top of it, pressure is applied to the back of the paper and then the paper is pulled off the plate. The image is then transferred onto the paper. This can be done once or over and over to construct an image. This results in ONE print only. Once this print is gone, it's gone. Done in lightfast and archival-quality top of the line professional Golden and Winsor Newton artist paints.
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.
