This is the first in two monoprints of a hare running. I loved the shapes the hare created mid run, and really enjoyed try to capture its speed in this print. There is another print, lighter in tone, in my shop worth taking a peak at before choosing.
This is part of a series of nature themed monoprints, created using high quality inks on Italian hand made fabriano paper (50% cotton, acid free). Comes mounted with acid free high quality card, delivered in a customer made Italian Shabby wood Frame (by frames Express).
What is a mono-print?
Also known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques , a monoprint is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, editions are not possible.
Mono-printing is to make an impression on paper, the process only allowing one print to be made. There are many different techniques that can be described as mono-prints, from potato printing to screen-printing, the word does not describe the process but rather the amount of impressions that can be made.
This monoprint was created by rolling ink onto a zinc plate, whipping away the ink with a rag and brush to create an image. By using oil based inks the drying time allows several hours to work in details before the images must be printed. Once ready the print is placed face down on damp top quality watercolour paper and rolled through a printing press. The pressure of the printing press transfers the ink from the plate onto the paper.
