Trailer Dog

I've recently got hooked on monotype printing thanks to my friend Belinda. It's a fascinating process which produces one-off prints.

You start with a smooth metal plate and paint your image onto it using any number of media - the trailer dog is printing ink and gouache - then you transfer it to paper either using a press or by hand with a brayer. When you pull the paper away the painting has migrated to the paper giving you an original and wonderfully textural piece of art!
