'Sandford Farm Tree I II III' 7x5 oil paint monotype with pastel
I am continuing my experimentation with monotypes this time trying some landscapes. One of my favorite places is Nantucket Island. So I have decided to do a series of Nantucket landscapes as monotypes. I developed the prints on a glass plate with oil paints. They were transferred by hand. After each print, I made slight changes to the image before printing. When the prints dried, I went back into them with pastel. If you enlarge the photos, you will be able to see the underlying prints. I loved working on these! The prints made such a unique and unpredictable underpainting for my pastels.
