Monoprints: Braithwaite House

Here are some prints from last week’s session at East London Printmakers.

This was an experiment using drypoint on transparent acrylic plates.

These pictures are done with two plates.

(1) Dry point to make the black lines.

The acrylic plate used for printing, marks scratched with a metal point – “drypoint”

(2) Painting directly onto a blank acrylic plate and then printing that on top.

The resulting pictures are “mono prints” because they are one-off. I can reproduce the black lines, but the coloured parts are unique on each plate.

I had another go on 8th March.

Here are further attempts:

    1. Thank you for your kind comment sueblackpenart. I will try to take more photos during the process. It’s interesting to see the difference between the ink painted on the plate, and the printed picture. I’m glad you enjoy the work, and I appreciate your encouragement.

      1. Yes, I really like them both as well and I’m very much interested in processes… Especially as I want to get into printing more as well. I got a lino I’m about to print just now.
