Monotype no. 11: the first layer is shaved Aquarelle crayons dissolved in water, painted onto a plexiglass prepared with gum arabic, printed on very lightly sized mystery paper. The second layer is linoleum, printed with oil based Gamblin ink. I’m pleased with the rich, saturated colors of the Aquarelle crayons, but not so pleased with my efforts to achieve interesting “blooming” effects by adding drops of water to the painted crayons. It was difficult to see in my dark studio how well the relief ink was covering the linoleum block, and my efforts were hampered by my 1 1/2″ brayer. I predict I’ll be using this linoleum block a few more times over the course of the year.
