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.

  1. Hello there! I have been looking through your blog and I love it! I am a college student, studying art and textiles. I was wondering if I could use you as an example of an artist for my research study? we are exploring printing and the theme is structure, so your leaf prints would be ideal for me to use as research,I think they're beautiful! kate :)
