About the artwork

This is a monotype an original print created by painting printing inks on the bed of a off set printing press normally used to print plate lithographs.  The image is created on the metal bed of the press then rolled over onto a blank piece of paper.  This is the nearest I have come to painting.  The main advantage of this method is that you can build up layers of semi transparent colours.  Again this is an image of a building in New York and one of a series of monotypes of New York
