Monoprinting: Falling Leaves and Swallow

I have recently been experimenting with Monoprinting combined with etching.

It is such a beautifully quick way to work.

It is a great way to work through ideas, placement and colour prior to creating an etching plate.

Printing a ghost print is also very effective, it has a much softer quality to original monoprint.

Happy Printing!
