An Original Monotype
Image size - 4.5x6" plate
This is an original, one of a kind monotype print of a Belle Isle footbridge over Nashua Creek with reflections and water lilies. It is printed with Kelsey black oil based ink on white Rives heavyweight paper.
This monotype print was made by inking a zinc plate with a roller, then removing and drawing into the ink to leave a design. Damp paper is then place on the plate and this is put through the press. The ink is transferred from the plate to the paper, so only one print can be made. There is a ghost image left on the plate. I used this ghost image as a base for a second similar but original monotype print

This is the reworked print from the first monotype print. The plate has more ink added and again is reworked to create the second original print. The mid-tone values in this one are lighter than the first print.
