Monotype Print Workshop


Fellow Artist and good friend Ilse Reimnitz and I just completed our summer Monotype Print Workshop.  Everyone who participated  brought real enthusiasm and creative energy to the weekend event. I thank each of them for jumping into the inky good time.

The approaches to monotype print are many.  The basics our workshop emphasized were  reductive methods of creating compositions to print, printing with selected natural shapes, with cut paper stencils, and printing with textural found materials.   We also experimented with draw-through  techniques.  The combination of these print methods result in painterly textures and unique imagery.
