Year of Printmaking: Colour Monoprint Experiments

This week I did a quick series of colour monoprints to try out this quick method; painting onto a sheet of glass then laying your paper on top to get the print. After each print I added something (either another colour, water or new layer) while the first colours were gradually fading away. Like life really,  always in a constant state of flux with things arriving and leaving.

I started out with an interior of cabinets & furniture as inspiration and added plants & shapes. I like the immediacy of created a monoprint and the fast way you have to work before the ink dries and how the colours drastically change between prints making each one unique.
