365 art challenge #2

img_2396

Caran d’ache artist’s crayons drawn directly onto the aquatint test plate used in print #1.  I have little to say about this print except that I’m obviously wasting my time with additive monotype techniques.  Onward to subtractive monotypes!

I did read afterward that artists can get nice results by shaving bits of artist’s crayons into water.  So I’m not going to chuck these crayons in the garbage as I’m tempted to do.  I bet some beautiful monotypes have been made with diluted crayon printed on Yupo paper.
