Monotypes

On a cold and windy day before christmas, I visited my dear friend Lene. And as always we had one of our little art jamsessions. We take turns to decide a topic to work from or certain materials to use. On this day I had talked Lene into dusting of her old printing press so we could print some monotypes. During a couple of hours we each did 7 or 8 unique prints, some better than others. It was very fascinating to work directly on a plate covered with printing ink, using different tools to scrape of the ink. This is very much in tune with the way I prefer to work... straight to the finish.
