Paloma, original monoprint, gelliprint

Paloma, original monoprint, gelliprint
Love this

Description

This is a monotype print made using acrylic paints on a gelli plate. When dry, I added some details in ink and graphite pencil and added a sepia watercolour wash, before adding the hand drawn collaged pigeons. I use only artist quality paints, such as Winsor and Newton, Amsterdam and Golden Artist Colors.

A monotype print is a one-off print that is made on a printing plate, in this case a gelli-plate which is made from gelatin. The print can be made in many ways, such as using stencils, masks, painting directly onto the plate, inking up the plate and then taking paint off with a cloth or cotton wool bud, to name but a few. It is one of my favourite means of making artwork, since it encourages experimentation and the end result is always a little bit of a surprise.
It comes with a small mount and a beautiful off-white, wooden frame, and is glazed (with glass), with fixtures and cord on the back, ready to hang.

It measures 20 x 27 cms
and including the frame, approx 33 x 40 cms

it will be packaged securely for transit, sent insured, and will require a signature upon delivery.
Disclaimer: broken glass is not covered by any carrier :( But I will do my very best to ensure that doesn`t happen.

Please message me if you have any questions and thanks for looking.

Inspiration

Paloma is a beautiful name for a girl in Spanish, while also meaning pigeon or dove. The birds were actually a bit of an afterthought to this piece, but the posture of the figure looked as if she was losing her balance and the idea of her being almost "attacked" by a flock of hungry pigeons just flew into my mind. (Pardon the pun). I think it is an experience that many people have had, say in a square in a big city, and i can almost hear the noise of their flapping wings as I write this!
