Watercolour Monotype

Before I developed my senior exhibition, I worked on a series of watercolour monotypes.  I began this work while preparing to go to Cuba and continued it until I finally found what I wanted to do for my enior exhibition. 

These pieces were created by painting watercolour on to sheets of thin plastic called duralar that had be prepped with gum arabic.  Once the watercolour paint dried, the duralar was run through a printing press with a damp piece of printmaking paper laid over the painted surface.  This was repeated until each sheet of duralar had been printed onto the paper. 

Each of these pieces were printed with three sheets of duralar.  Each sheet had a single colour applied to it.
