RED Buds

‘Red Buds’ is the title of the work from which a detail is used as a banner at the top of the front page. It is a monotype which is a type of one-off print. I made it by covering an acrylic sheet in blockprinting ink and watercolour paint and then pressing the sheet onto paper. Other than choosing colours and where to add them the initial print is not planned – the colours will run and seep into each other. Once the print had dried I used coloured pencils to accentuate forms and create an ‘image’. ‘Red Buds’ measure 61×46 cm.
