Continuing my experimentation with stencils and mixed media this series, Seeds came off the press. These colorful monoprints are pulled on Rives BFK 11" x 11" paper as bleed prints meaning the ink travels over the edge of the paper.
You can guess that this series is a lot of fun. Using oval shapes that I hand-cut out of stencil board patterns emerge as the techniques of monotype, masking, off-set and ghost printing are applied. Surprising color combinations are created as the ink, some with a transparency additive, are layered atop eachother. Once the prints were dry paint and ink were applied to create different textures.
