It seems like this week flew by, didn't it? Once again, i'm digging deep to find something remotely related to IF's theme, "Swim." Luckily, this mono print surfaced in time, but just barely.
This one was done by creating a simple painting on a sheet of plexiglass with printmaking ink. Working quickly, I then placed a slightly damp sheet of paper on top of the "plate." With pressure applied with a burnishing tool, (in this case I used a rice paddle), the design eventually transferred to the paper, which was then lifted off the plexiglass, yielding a "one of a kind" print.
It's still a little but cool to go for a dip in the ocean early in this spring, so for today, these little fish will have to do the swimming!
