This monotype is a re-working of the flooded forest idea I’ve tried before. This time I wanted to included more colour variation and layers of branches and tree trunks. When I’m working on a piece like this, the colour and shape relationships can become quite abstract and move away from realism
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges. The poppies were printed using a viscosity method which rolling a stiffer ink over an oily ink.
