For the land area, I included my much-loved printed pattern-making using textured materials. I related the darker colours of the land to the lighter colours in the sky. I aim to have a three-way colour contrast to really bring that surface to life.

 

The tree is really significant in the composition. It not only provide a focus for the eyes but brings symbolic meaning as we relate it to ourselves: a struggle in adversity, defiance against the elements, finding you own way, basking in the light.

 

A monotype is a one-off hand-made print, just as unique as a painting. I used rollers and dabbers to spread out ink on a smooth plastic board then made marks with a cloth and other tools. The ink was transferred to the paper using a hand-operated printing press. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing several times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
