Watercolor Monoprints - Autumn Birch Leaves
The exciting thing for me when I make these prints is the tension between abtsract and realism and control and spontanaity. My need to play with paint is satisfied at the same time the paintings have a subject or theme. Here I have added quinacridrone magenta to my usual pallete. The pigment explodes when dropped onto wet paper and spreads itself beautifully.
