Here’s a trace monotype done during a busy week of year-end paperwork. No need for a press. I “ink” up the worktable in my studio, which means that I brush, roll and otherwise apply oil paint to the work surface. Then I lay down a sheet of Gampi paper, and draw. I’m in love with the special character of the lines and tones the variable pressure of hand and pencil pulls up from below.
This is about 48 x 30 inches, 2019, oil on gampi paper. Untitled.
