Italian Sketches





Moleskin Sketchbook images of Italy

These are a few sketches I did on our recent trip to Rome, Umbria and Tuscany, Italy. It was very inspiring and I will be doing a series of paintings and prints from the many, many photos I took.

Belle Isle Foot Bridge

Belle Isle Foot Bridge
Magsig
Original Monotype print on Rives heavyweight Paper
2012, image is 6x4.5"
Edition of 1/1


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


Belle Isle Foot Bridge II

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.

Zug Island
Oil on linen/panel, 2012, 5x7"
SOLD
This painting is an industrial landscape view of the Great Lakes Steel plant on Zug Island in  the Detroit river. I am always delighted when they blow the steam like this while I am there, very dramatic on a grey day. I have included an aerial view of Zug island for your pleasure.
