August Green, Watercolour Monotype

 I'm looking forward to using more of this very seductive process this year. For someone like me, who works quickly, it pays to have a number of plates on the go at the same time, because you have to wait for the watercolour to dry completely before you add another layer, or before you print. This is the first print produced, from a single plate image.
2 plates were used for this one, and I think I may have worked back into it with watercolour. The techniques become seamless and after a while, it's even hard to tell what was printed, and what was added by brush later.
